Artificial-Life Ecosystems - What are they and what could they become?

Alan Dorin, Kevin B. Korb, Volker Grimm
2008 Workshop on the Synthesis and Simulation of Living Systems  
This paper summarises the history of the terms ecology and ecosystem, before examining their application in the early and recent literature of A-Life agent-based software simulation.  ...  Implications of these characteristics for the relevance of A-Life's virtual ecosystem models to Ecology are discussed.  ...  Introduction As even a cursory survey of the early and current literature reveals, within the fields of Artificial Life and Ecological Modelling, agent (individual)-based virtual ecosystem model construction  ...

AB INITIO MODELING OF ECOSYSTEMS WITH ARTIFICIAL LIFE

C. ADAMI
2008 Natural Resource Modeling  
Artificial Life provides the opportunity to study the emergence and evolution of simple ecosystems in real time.  ...  The Digital Life system Avida is introduced and prospects for experiments with ab initio evolution (evolution "from scratch"), maintenance, as well as stability of ecosystems are discussed.  ...  A portion of the research described in this paper was carried out at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, under a contract with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.  ...

Cooperation and Community Structure in Artificial Ecosystems

Kristian Lindgren, Mats G. Nordahl
1993 Artificial Life  
Artificial ecosystems can also be manipulated in many ways that are impossible for real communities.  ...  Real ecosystems are subject to constraints such as conservation of energy and matter.  ...

On Writing and Reading Artistic Computational Ecosystems

Rui Filipe Antunes, Frederic Fol Leymarie, William Latham
2015 Artificial Life  
These are virtual worlds running on computers, composed of agents that trade units of energy and emulate cycles of life and behaviors adapted from biological life forms.  ...  We study the use of the generative systems known as computational ecosystems to convey artistic and narrative aims.  ...  On Writing and Reading Artistic Computational Ecosystems Artificial Life Volume 21, Number 3 Saussure is one of the key figures in linguistic structuralism and semiotics.  ...

An Evolving Ecosystems Approach to Generating Complex Agent Behaviour

Peter-Paul Pichler, Lola Canamero
2007 2007 IEEE Symposium on Artificial Life  
The agents start with very limited functional design and morphology and neural controllers are concurrently evolved as functional wholes.  ...  The agents are 'grounded' in an increasingly complex environment by a complex model metabolism and interaction dynamics.  ...  Especially, our agents are separate from the environment by external definition and they are not self-replicating.  ...

Evolved digital ecosystems: Dynamic steady state, not optimal fixed point

Randal Olson, Masoud Mirmomeni, Tim Brom, Eric Bruger, Arend Hintze, David Knoester, Christoph Adami
2013 Advances in Artificial Life, ECAL 2013  
Such ecosystems are said to have reached an optimal fixed point.  ...  Traditional models of ecosystems often assume that the species composing an unperturbed ecosystem become fixed so that only the relative abundances of the species change over time.  ...  Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the NSF.  ...
