A Pure Finite State Baseline for Tartarus

  title={A Pure Finite State Baseline for Tartarus},
  author={Dan Ashlock and Jennifer L Freeman}
Tartarus is a standard test problem used to evaluate evolutionary computation techniques for solving problems in artificial intelligence. A gap in the Tartarus literature is a lack of systematic baseline studies for standard types of chromosomes in broad use in evolutionary computation. In this paper we adapt plain finite state automata to serve as controllers for virtual robots in the Tartarus environment. We overcome the bandwidth limitations on finite state automata that have prevented their… CONTINUE READING
