I wouldn't expect it to be useable at run time. I suspect the solver requires quite a few iterations to get it right, and that each iteration is in itself a processing intensive operation.

This is... wow! Just WOW!

Some years ago I was also thinking at stuff like that, if we eliminate the detail of how muscles generate forces, there could be a way to just solve the forces right? Well, it turns out it would have been quite some work!

The genericity of the algorithm is impressive.

The evolution of a viable controller is an offline process, almost certainly. Though given that their controllers seem to be robust in well under 1,000 generations, that's going to be a pretty quick offline process.

 

Once you have evolved a stable controller, applying it at runtime should be entirely feasible.
