Generating a bit pattern with predefined parameters

Now that we know how a genetic algorithm works, let's see how to use it to solve some problems. We will be using a Python package called DEAP. You can find all the details about it at . Let's go ahead and install it by running the following command on your Terminal:

$ pip3 install deap

Now that the package is installed, let's quickly test it. Go into the Python shell by typing the following on your Terminal:

$ python3

Once you are inside, type the following:

>>> import deap

If you do not see an error message, we are good to go.

In this section, we will solve a variant of the One Max problem. The One Max problem is about generating a bit string that contains ...
