Evolutionary Keyboard Layout

May 21st, 2005 | Filed under: Computing, Programming | No Comments »

QWERTY is simply inefficient and backwards. Dvorak is a better, but not quite there yet. Using an evolutionary program written in 1000 lines of C, we now have the most efficient keyboard layout; in theory. It turns out Dvorak is winning the race so far, but it may just be a matter of human bias. Or maybe a champion QWERTY typist will throw the whole race off?
