I know that the general idea is not new... if I remember correctly, these sort of ideas run at least back to the '60s, when they were known as "branch and bound algorithms". Thus my hunch is that while a particular implementation might well be under active patent, loads of prior art could be found for anything more general. So there's $0.02 worth of insight from someone with only $0.01 worth of knowledge on the topic. :-)

    Yup, and even further back. The bibliography of Genetic Algorithms by David Goldberg lists books from 1951 and 1952. Also they basically 'stole' the idea from mother nature :)

    No, sorry, branch-and-bound is not genetic. Actual true genetic programming started in the '70's, with Holland.
