We present the results of our replication of Karl Sims' work on the evolution of artificial creatures in a physically realistic 3D environment. We used standard McCulloch-Pitts neurons instead of a more complex set of ad hoc neurons, which we believe makes our model a more general tool for future experiments in artificial (co-)evolution. We provide a detailed description of our model and freely accessible source code. We describe our results both qualitatively and quantitatively, including an… CONTINUE READING
