While automated fitness systems can tolerate large numbers of poor fitness offspring, the low population sizes of interactive system require design spaces with higher average fitness. , function sets, value ranges) is in many ways as equally challenging as developing techniques for searching for potential solutions. While much work focuses on innovative ways to assist in finding regions of high fitness, making the high-fitness regions large enough that they are easily discovered is also a frequent topic.
