Gradient descent vs. neuroevolution

A great look at a new optimization technique called 'neuroevolution', which was recently introduced by both OpenAI and Uber AI Research. The article starts off with a great explanation of the optimization problem that's solved when training neural networks and follows through with a comparison between the new neuroevolution and the conventional gradient descent approach. Very interesting and extremely well written.
