*Best Complexity (with complexity vs. without complexity)*

This graph demonstrates the relationship between the best individuals in the population and their complexity. The primary point of interest is the steady increase of the complexity of the best individuals in the test that did not use complexity in evaluating fitness, perhaps indicating that "bigger is better" for playing Othello. The test that did use complexity in evaluating fitness leveled off at a nearly constant value. (In fact, most of them were the same individual). Also see the graph of the average complexity, which demonstrates the correlation between complexity and fitness a little better.
