On Computational Ecosystems in Media Arts

Rui Filipe Antunes
2016 Leonardo: Journal of the International Society for the Arts, Sciences and Technology  
A Computational Ecosystem is a system of agents designed to emulate, in the computer, biological systems where autonomous individuals are organized in a hierarchical food chain and interact by trading  ...  The central claim is focused on how the narratives normally associated with these systems and their functioning are two complementary, but separate entities.  ...  The ability to learn and adapt, and the possibilities for delays between action and reaction are also present in other techniques of reinforcement learning, such as Neural Networks.  ...
