  abstract =     "Techniques in evolutionary computation (EC) have
                 improved significantly over the years, leading to a
                 substantial increase in the complexity of problems that
                 can be solved by EC-based approaches. The HUMIES awards
                 at the Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference
                 are designed to recognise work that has not just solved
                 some problem via techniques from evolutionary
                 computation, but has produced a solution that is
                 demonstrably human-competitive. In this chapter, we
                 take a look across the winners of the past 10 years of
                 the HUMIES awards, and analyse them to determine
                 whether there are specific approaches that consistently
                 show up in the HUMIE winners. We believe that this
                 analysis may lead to interesting insights regarding
                 prospects and strategies for producing further human
                 competitive results.",
