Sorry for radio silence the last few days, however I was furiously looking at results and working on a submission to this years Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO).

GECCO uses a blind review, so mentions of authorship (and the CSG because that would make it pretty obvious who the author was) are removed until the camera ready version if it's accepted, but if you'd like to take a look at the submitted draft here it is:

Large Scale Evolution of Convolutional Neural Networks Using Volunteer Computing

It explains the algorithm I'm using in a bit of detail, and discusses some of the preliminary results. You may ask, how does recognizing numbers related to detecting wildlife -- well the idea is to use this on the datasets you've been helping us generate by classifying video and marking up the images. Thanks again everyone for the crunching and volunteering!
