I believe the algorithm parameters are derived genetically, but the 
actual running just uses the derived parameters. I believe they showed 
this at some GDC, perhaps five years back. They had a set of legs that 
started to learn how to walk, and they measured energy usage, and did 
genetic selection until they had a very efficient walk cycle -- only to 
realize that artists make walk cycles already, so they should apply 
their technology to something more interesting :-)
