The webinar is good.it would be better if we get the example files.

Thought we were going to see how the opossum portion was set up - bit too much of a jump from the theory to end state/comparison benchmarking. Very informative though and inspires me to try it for myself.
Couldn't attend live? You should still register! You'll receive all raw files (.zip) and will have life-time access to the video recording.
This webinar discusses optimization in Rhino/Grasshopper. Using benchmark results from (mostly single-objective) structural, building energy, and daylighting problems, we discover which optimization algorithms to use when, and how Opossum uses a cutting-edge, machine-learning-related algorithm to get a head-start on other algorithms.
We will see how to structurally optimize a small pavilion with Opossum 1.5 and catch a sneak preview of Opossum 2.0, which allows the visualization and interactive exploration of machine-learned fitness landscapes.
