Embedded-particle computation in evolved cellular automata
Author(s): Wim Hordijk ,James Crutchfield , Melanie Mitchell

Subject(s): CX.04

Category: Brief Article


In our work we are studying how genetic algorithms (GAs) can evolve cellular automata (CAs) to perform computations that require global coordination. The "evolving cellular automata" framework is an idealized means for studying how evolution (natural or computational) can create systems that perform emergent computation, in which the actions of simple components with local information and communication give rise to coordinated global information processing.
