Fight or flight: Evolving maps for cube 2 to foster a fleeing behavior

Daniele Loiacono, Luca Arnaboldi
2017 2017 IEEE Conference on Computational Intelligence and Games (CIG)  
The fight-or-flight response is a typical physiological reaction to an imminent threat, which prepares the body to fight or flee.  ...  In particular, we presented a procedural content generation approach, based on evolutionary computation, to evolve maps for Cube 2, an open source first person shooter.  ...  INTRODUCTION Fight-or-flight is a typical physiological response to an attack or to a perceived threat [2] .  ...

The cubes were offered at a high density (100 cubes/0.01 m2), low density (30 cubes/0.01 m2), and an aggregated low density (30 cubes divided into 6 1cm 2 patches).  ...  We hypothesized that under acute conditions, just as the stress response prepares the cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems for fight or flight, it may also prepare the immune system for challenges  ...  This occurs when the new prey type is captured or processed using a new behavior or mechanism.  ...

Brain complexity enhances speed of behavioral evolution

H. P. Lipp
1979 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
Some of their apparent variation can be accounted for by the fact that innate and culturally evolved patterns of behavior can often substitute as functional equivalents for one another within a given context  ...  The discovery that nonverbal and verbal behaviors can substitute for one another bridges the gap between these seemingly distinct categories of behavior, and opens the way for the study of a grammar of  ...  Caoine facial expressions that result from a superposition of various intensities of fighting and flight intentions, a-c dimension: increasing readiness to flee; a-g dimension: increasing aggression and  ...
