Emergence of Self-Replicating Loops in an Interactive, Hardware-Implemented Game-of-Life Environment [chapter]

André Stauffer, Moshe Sipper
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We present the design of an interactive self-replicating loop, wherein the user can physically induce the loop's creation and then control its replication and destruction.  ...  After introducing the BioWall, a reconfigurable electronic wall for bio-inspired applications, we describe the design of our novel loop and delineate its hardware implementation in the wall. * A.  ...  In this paper we present the emergence of this interactive self-replicating loop in a Game-of-Life (or, simply, Life) environment [11] .  ...

Evolving Digital Ecological Networks

Miguel A. Fortuna, Luis Zaman, Aaron P. Wagner, Charles Ofria, Shoshana Wodak
2013 PLoS Computational Biology  
Despite being computational, these programs evolve quickly in an open-ended way, and starting from only one or two ancestral organisms, the formation of ecological networks can be observed in real-time  ...  The types and outcomes of interactions between phenotypes are determined by task overlap for logicdefined phenotypes and by responses to encounters in the case of behavioral phenotypes.  ...  The version history of the text file and the peer reviews (and response to reviews) are available as supporting information in Text S1 and S2.  ...

1998 Advances in Computers  
Thus, in the rest of this article, we will focus on self-replicating structures implemented within the framework of cellular automata.  ...  More recently, w e h a v e taken a third approach in our own work that focuses on self-replication as an emergent property rather than, as in the past, being based solely on manually designed replicants  ...  current state and the state of immediate neighbor cells, any self-replicating structures observed in the models we consider must be an emergent behavior arising from strictly local interactions.  ...

Major Feedback Loops Supporting Artificial Evolution in Multi-modular Robotics [chapter]

Thomas Schmickl, Jürgen Stradner, Heiko Hamann, Lutz Winkler, Karl Crailsheim
2011 Studies in Computational Intelligence  
Self-organization is a major component of our framework and is implemented by a hormone-inspired controller governing the behavior of singular autonomous modules.  ...  We show first results, which were obtained by artificial evolution with our framework, and give an outlook of how the framework will be applied in future research.  ...  However, all feedback loops interact in a complex way, which is the key point of this approach.  ...
