                 Steven Gustafson is a computer scientist at the General
                 Electric Global Research Center in Niskayuna, New York.
                 As a member of the Computational Intelligence Lab, he
                 develops and applies advanced AI and machine learning
                 algorithms for complex problem solving. He received his
                 PhD in computer science from the University of
                 Nottingham, UK, where he was a research fellow in the
                 Automated Scheduling, Optimisation and Planning
                 Research Group. He received his BS and MS in computer
                 science from Kansas State University, where he was a
                 research assistant in the Knowledge Discovery in
                 Databases Laboratory. His PhD dissertation, an analysis
                 of a biologically inspired search algorithm in the
                 space of computer programs, was nominated for the
                 British Computer Society and the Conference of
                 Professors and Heads of Computing Distinguished
                 Dissertation award, which recognises the top PhD thesis
                 in the UK computer science community. In 2005 and 2006,
                 he coauthored papers that won the Best Paper Award at
                 the European Conference on Genetic Programming. Outside
                 of work, Gustafson enjoys literature and travelling
                 with his wife and infant son.",

                 Richard A. Watson University of Southampton

                 Richard A. Watson is a senior lecturer in the natural
                 systems research group at the University of
                 Southampton's School of Electronics and Computer
                 Science. He received his BA in AI from the University
                 of Sussex in 1990 and then worked in industry for about
                 five years. Returning to academia, he chose Sussex
                 again for an MSc in knowledge-based systems, where he
                 was introduced to evolutionary modelling. His PhD in
                 computer science at Brandeis University (2002) resulted
                 in 22 publications and a dissertation addressing the
                 algorithmic concepts underlying the major transitions
                 in evolution. A postdoctoral position at Harvard
                 University's Department of Organismic and Evolutionary
                 Biology provided training to complement his computer
                 science background. He now has over 35 journal and
                 conference publications on topics spanning artificial
                 life, robotics, evolutionary computation, and
                 computational biology. At Southampton, he's
                 establishing a new research group and leading
                 preparation of a new MSc in complexity science. He is
                 the author of Compositional Evolution: The Impact of
                 Sex, Symbiosis, and Modularity on the Gradualist
                 Framework of Evolution (MIT Press, 2006).",
