Is Genetic Algorithm a Machine Learning Method

0 votes
As my understanding, Q Learning is a machine learning. Because it learns a concept. It learns states. But when it comes to genetic algorithms, i don't see them as machine learning. To me, these algorithms are just a way of optimizing a specific problem. If environment changes(states), precalculated genetic algorithm based solution will be useless. You have to run it again.

So the question is, Is Genetic Algorithm a Machine Learning Method?

All the replies will be appreciated. Thanks.

A pure Genetic Algorithm solution does not save any data from previous runs; each run is a new beginning. We can use Machine Learning to optimize Genetic Algorithm parameters or utilize GA as one of the steps in Machine Learning, but Genetic Algorithm is not Machine Learning in and of itself because Machine Learning must learn from past runs.
