Community Contest Genetic image compression
Hey, so we were discussing some recent work that used a genetic algorithm to achieve a very interesting, very new way of compressing images by decomposing them into a handful of overlapping polygons. The techniqute brings the prospect for high compression ratios and image artifacts that are more art than nuisance. Take a look here: [url="http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?s=&showtopic=83775&view=findpost&p=479761"]http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?s=&...st&p=479761[/url]

However, the cost is CPU time. Yet, with an acceleration of one or two orders of magnitude, it might become practical.

One problem with this "contest" is that we don´t have an impartial judge or panel of judges yet and that the rules are not quite agreed upon. Also several parties have begun to work on imlementations in "freestyle" manner, myself included

So anyone willing to organize this contest - step forward.
