Language as an evolutionary system

Evolutionary morphogenesis for multi-cellular systems

Daniel Roggen, Diego Federici, Dario Floreano
2006 Genetic Programming and Evolvable Machines  
A novel classification of multi-cellular developmental systems in evolvable hardware is introduced. It shows a category of developmental systems that up to now has rarely been explored.  ...  The morphogenetic system is inspired by gene expression and cellular differentiation. It focuses on low computational requirements which allows fast execution and a compact hardware implementation.  ...  Acknowledgments This project is funded by the Future and Emerging Technologies programme (IST-FET) of the European Community, under grant IST-2000-28027 (POETIC).  ...

Comprehensive Survey of Evolutionary Morphological Soft Robotic Systems [article]

Reem J. Alattas, Sarosh Patel, Tarek M. Sobh
2017 arXiv   pre-print
Evolutionary robotics aims to automatically design autonomous adaptive morphological robots that can evolve to accomplish a specific task while adapting to environmental changes.  ...  The motivation of developing evolutionary soft computing techniques to that can generate task oriented structures for morphological robots makes the domain of soft robotics worthy of serious investigation  ...  This system can evolve in discrete time steps, so each cell can compute its new internal state.  ...

Evolutionary string theory

Zen Faulkes, Anita Davelos Baines
2007 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
In his theory of evolution, Darwin recognized that the conditions of life play a role in the generation of hereditary variations, as well as in their selection.  ...  However, as evolutionary theory was developed further, heredity became identified with genetics, and variation was seen in terms of combinations of randomly generated gene mutations.  ...  Likewise, sticks of celery and candy were first metaphors inspired by their resemblance to twigs, whereas getting stuck by a pin was a metaphor inspired by pointed twigs' potential for puncture.  ...

An interdisciplinary perspective on artificial immune systems

J. Timmis, P. Andrews, N. Owens, E. Clark
2008 Evolutionary Intelligence  
We argue that Artificial Immune Systems are much more than engineered systems inspired by the immune system and that there is a great deal for both immunology and engineering to learn from each other through  ...  This review paper attempts to position the area of Artificial Immune Systems (AIS) in a broader context of interdisciplinary research.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors would like to thank many people in the AIS community who have engaged in many interesting discussions over the years, and in particular at the recent 2007 ICARIS conference  ...
