Noise Suppression - Why not use genetic algorithms?

I've removed advertising from most of this site and will eventually clean up the few pages where it remains.

While not terribly expensive to maintain, this does cost me something. If I don't get enough donations to cover that expense, I will be shutting the site down in early 2020.

If you found something useful today, please consider a small donation.

I was a little surprised by this, because of the apparent hit and miss nature of the design. I would have thought the way to do this would be to use an evolutionary algorithm (also called "genetic algorithms") whose goal would be eliminating noise. So you'd have X number of speakers around the noise source, Y number of microphones at the points you want to be quieted, and let the algorithm evolve to determine what it needs to do to get the best results. That would be a general purpose solution rather than one specifically tuned to a particular noise source.

I think that this kind of software will be used much more in the future: http://www.aaai.org/AITopics/html/genalg.html
