Optimization of autonomous agents by means of learning and evolution

Vladimir Red'ko
2013 Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures  
The genotype and the phenotype are chains of binary symbols. The initial phenotype (at the moment of the agent birth) is equal to the agent genotype.  ...  Three mechanisms of interaction between learning and evolution are investigated. 1) The mechanism of the genetic assimilation of the acquired features during a number of generations of Darwinian evolution  ...  Acknowledgments This work is partially supported by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research, Grant No 13-01-00399.  ...

Grammatical Evolution by Grammatical Evolution: The Evolution of Grammar and Genetic Code [chapter]

Michael O'Neill, Conor Ryan
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
As the grammar dictates the space of symbols that can be used in a solution, its evolution represents the evolution of the genetic code itself.  ...  This study examines the possibility of evolving the grammar that Grammatical Evolution uses to specify the construction of a syntactically correct solution.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors would like to thank the various members of the Biocomputing and Developmental Systems Group at the University of Limerick for a number of interesting discussions on this work  ...

Search-based inference of dialect grammars

Massimiliano Di Penta, Pierpaolo Lombardi, Kunal Taneja, Luigi Troiano

Inspections indicated that the changes automatically made to the grammar during its evolution preserved its meaningfulness, and were comparable to what a developer could have done by hand.  ...  Results obtained experimenting the inference of C dialect rules show that the algorithm is able to successfully evolve the grammar.  ...  the evolution towards grammars able to parse any (also syntactically incorrect) code.  ...
