Evolving the Game of Life [chapter]

Dimitar Kazakov, Matthew Sweet
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This fitness function promotes the existence of areas on the verge of chaos, where life is expected to thrive.  ...  The results are reported for the case of CA in which cells are in one of four possible states.  ...  When a cell in the game board is discovered which contains life then check the surrounding unchecked cells to identify if any of those are live.  ...

Evolving Interesting Initial Conditions for Cellular Automata of the Game of Life Type

Manuel Alfonseca, Francisco José Soler Gil
2012 Complex Systems  
The use of a genetic algorithm to obtain "interesting" initial conditions for cellular automata of the family of Conway's Game of Life is described in this paper.  ...  Besides the original Game of Life rules, we have tested automata with similar rules, such as High-Life and B38S23, as well as mixed and time-dependent rules.  ...  The 2D CA called the Game of Life [3, 4] was designed by John Conway.  ...

The algorithm is designed for a pray-predator game where a player is to improve its lifespan, challenging level and usability of the game arena through number of generations.  ...  ) is maximized with ranking, and also without ranking where dominated solutions are also allowed to evolve.  ...  These matrices are combined in a fitness function to guide the search for evolving the rules of the game. The result of their experiment shows that games can be evolved in this manner.  ...

The semi-quantum game of life [article]

David Faux, Mayank Shah, Christopher Knapp
2019 arXiv   pre-print
The semi-quantum game of life (SQGOL) is an adaptation in which each cell is in a superposed state of both dead and alive and evolves according to modified rules.  ...  Conway's classic game of life is a two-dimensional cellular automaton in which each cell, either alive or dead, evolves according to rules based on its local environment.  ...  In summary, the semi-quantum game of life has been simulated for a 2D grid of cells providing rich and complex behaviour.  ...

PicoPet creates a new form of gaming experience that is directly blended into the physical world, thus could become incorporated into the player's daily life as well as reflecting their lifestyle.  ...  The player can project the pet into physical environments, and the pet behaves and evolves differently according to the physical surroundings.  ...  Such evolvement not only provides space for development and personalization in the game, but also means that the form of the pets may reflect the lifestyle and living environments of the players themselves  ...

Evolution of cartesian genetic programs capable of learning

Gul Muhammad Khan, Julian F. Miller
2009 Proceedings of the 11th Annual conference on Genetic and evolutionary computation - GECCO '09  
The novelty of the research lies mainly in two aspects: Firstly, chromosomes are evolved that encode programs rather than the network directly and when these programs are executed they build networks which  ...  We propose a new form of Cartesian Genetic Programming (CGP) that develops into a computational network capable of learning. The developed network architecture is inspired by the brain.  ...  Figure 5: Average fitness of Co-evolved player against an evolved player for five games Figure 7 : 7 Average cumulative fitness of Co-evolved player against an evolved player for five and ten games  ...

Breaking the Synaptic Dogma: Evolving a Neuro-inspired Developmental Network [chapter]

Gul Muhammad Khan, Julian F. Miller, David M. Halliday
2008 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In these models learning is seen as the process of obtaining the strengths of connections between neurons (i.e. weights). We refer to this as the 'synaptic dogma'.  ...  Our aim is to show that it is possible to evolve programs that allow a network to learn through experience (i.e. encode the ability to learn).  ...  of a well evolved agent (2000th generation) during all the games.  ...

Life, death, new species and children from a "Quantum Game of Life" [article]

David Faux, Mayank Shah, Christopher Knapp
2019 arXiv   pre-print
We observe the emergence of chaos and scaling phenomena making the quantum game of life an exciting prospect for further exploration as a model for life-like behaviors.  ...  The game of life is interesting because complexity emerges from simple rules and mimics real life in that a cell flourishes only if the environment is "just right" producing a breadth of life-like behavior  ...  A process for the quantisation of Conway's classical game was proposed in 2008 by Flitney and Abbott 4 and referred to here as a quantum game of life (QGOL).  ...

Evolution of Fairness in the Not Quite Ultimatum Game

Genki Ichinose, Hiroki Sayama
2014 Scientific Reports  
The Ultimatum Game (UG) is an economic game where two players (proposer and responder) decide how to split a certain amount of money.  ...  Evolutionary simulations of NQUG showed that the probabilistic decision making contributes to the increase of proposers' offer amounts to avoid rejection, while the repetition of the game works to responders  ...  Here we show that fairness can evolve without additional information if the game is probabilistic, which we call the Not Quite Ultimatum Game (NQUG).  ...

Developing neural structure of two agents that play checkers using cartesian genetic programming

Gul Muhammad Khan, Julian Francis Miller, David M. Halliday
2008 Proceedings of the 2008 GECCO conference companion on Genetic and evolutionary computation - GECCO '08  
A developmental model of neural network is presented and evaluated in the game of Checkers. The network is developed using cartesian genetic programs (CGP) as genotypes.  ...  Two agents are provided with this network and allowed to co-evolve untill they start playing better.  ...  Thus one would expect well evolved agent to play much better than earlier ones. To test whether more evolved agents were indeed playing the game better, we did a number of experiments.  ...
