This is a good example of the mystication of evolution that constantly muddles the evolution question and fallacies of darwinism (natural selection).
As we noted in the discussion of Hoyle: natural selection can never be right so when we find an article like this we have to go in search of the mistake. Not so easy here: if Google engineers are confused they can confuse us. Smart people, but smart people have often been darwinists, not so smart..
The problem, although we need to consider the whole article, is probably right on the surface: if a whole team of Google engineers is designing an evolutionary model then that’s it: it is designed. If take a closer look we will find that natural selection, designed in, is not really random but has a fudge factor that derandomizes the outcome.
A pity here: the use of AI in evolutionary explanation could be very useful if only we could trust the likes of darwinists here Google engineers…

I took on Noam Chomsky’s ideas about language and unleashed a decade of debate and ridicule. But is my argument wrong?

Politics, geography, and tradition have long focused archaeological attention on the evolution of Homo sapiens in Europe and Africa. Now, new research is challenging old ideas by showing that early human migrations unfolded across Asia far earlier than previously known.

“It’s extremely exciting to see if it can turn up any algorithms that we haven’t even thought of yet, the impact of which to our daily lives may be enormous,” one computer expert told Newsweek.
