> he experimented with a sort of an evolutionary algorithm where he would change one or two things, note the results

I do that when baking. A little more water, a little less, note the results. Bake it a bit longer, a bit hotter, or cooler, etc.

I think of it as "experiments" and "science" rather than "evolutionary algorithm" but whatever model helps.
