If we’re willing to accept that we don’t need the route between all of the landmarks, then we can turn to smarter techniques such as genetic algorithms to find a solution that’s good enough for our purposes. If you’re able to drive through Canada without issue, then take the direct route through Canada instead.Instead of exhaustively looking at every possible solution, genetic algorithms start with a handful of random solutions and continually tinkers with these solutions — always trying something slightly different from the current solutions and keeping the best ones — until they can’t find a better solution any more. Note: There’s an extra stop in Cleveland to force the route between Vermont and Michigan to stay in the U. Assuming no traffic, this road trip will take about 224 hours (9.33 days) of driving in total, so it’s truly an epic undertaking that will take at least 2-3 months to complete. on this trip, and as an added bonus, you won’t spend too long driving through the endless corn fields of Nebraska.
state has long been on my bucket list, so I jumped on the opportunity and opened up my machine learning tool box for another quick weekend project. is, it’s especially difficult to make a road trip that will appeal to everyone.
All that was left was to figure out the path that would minimize our time spent driving and maximize our time spent enjoying the landmarks.
But really, this algorithm works just as well when you’re planning a smaller trip within your state as when you’re planning a larger trip spanning the entire world. This blog is my labor of love, and I've spent hundreds of hours working on the projects that you'll read about here.
All the algorithm needs are the distances travelled between every stop so it can try to compute the optimal route. Generally, I write about data visualization and machine learning, and sometimes explore out-of-the-box projects at the intersection of the two.
