I did and am still doing some work on genetic algorithm optimised
compilation. The project used GA optimisation for two different
targets i) parallel shared memory and ii) VLIW embedded systems. I
use a GA to optimise the transformations applied to a source program,
this work has mostly looked at loop transformations for scientific
programs, but there is no reason why it couldn't be extended to
machine code -- indeed there are some plans to continue aspects of an
EU project (OCEANS) which looked into interactions between high (loop)
level and low-level (assembler/machine code scheduling/generation)
transformations. There are some terribly out of date (aren't they all)
web pages on this work at
... I've since moved
to Trinity College, and this work is still ongoing here
