Finding near-optimal Bayesian experimental designs via Genetic algorithms

*American Statistician*, *55*(3), 175–181.

Contributors: M. Hamada ^{*}, H. Martz^{*}, C. Reese^{*} & ^{*}

author keywords: expected information gain; logistic regression; linear and nonlinear regression; multifactor designs; Shannon information

TL;DR:
A genetic algorithm can be used to find near-optimal Bayesia nexperimental designs for regression models based on the expected Shannon information gain from performing a given experiment compared with the prior distribution.
