{Strategy Market} Test by kkohli:

(I’m sorry if this is the wrong place to put this! I looked for the “correct spot” & didn’t find one.)

Free energy in loops of 1.5 or less.
Melting point between 97 and 107.
G-C bond at the opening of at least 60% of all loops.
Amount of G between 25 and 35%.
Free energy of no more than -30.

Dear kkohli,

Your strategy has been added to our implementation queue with task id 10. You can check the schedule of the implementation here.

ETA of the implementation is Monday 6/6/2011

Thanks for sharing your idea!

Hi kkohli

We are having bit of trouble dealing with energies in loops in algorithms.

We’ll implement your algorithm as soon as we fix the problem -we are sorry about the delay!

Dear Example,

We are glad to report that your strategy has been implemented and tested.

While implementing your strategy, we have made small changes to the parameters you specified to optimize the performance.

Note that we’ll always run a optimization over the parameters you specify, so you won’t have to worry about fine tuning all the numbers you use. Just the idea and rough numbers are enough to run your algorithm!

Length : Your strategy was implmented with 30 line of code.

Ordering : We ran your strategy on all synthesized designs and ordered them based on predicted scores. The correlation of your strategy’s ordering with the ordering based on the actual scores was 0.201. (1.0 is the best score, -1.0 is the worst score. A completely random prediction would have 0 correlation)

Please note that the numbers specified above will change in future as we’ll rerun your algorithm whenever new synthesis data is available.

More detailed result has been posted on the strategy market page. Thank you for sharing your idea, and we look forward to other brilliant strategies from you!

Also, please take a look at the new strategy market plan. In short, we would like to ask you to use single feature for each strategy - for example, instead of saying GC must be 60% and loops should have energy lower than -3.0…you’ll publish one strategy for each of them. The point is that you don’t have to worry about combining multiple features - we’ll do that for you!
