Achieving High-Level Functionality through Complexification

  title={Achieving High-Level Functionality through Complexification},
  author={Kenneth O. Stanley and Risto Miikkulainen},
An appropriate but challenging goal for evolutionary computation (EC) is to evolve systems of biological complexity. However, specifying complex structures requires many genes, and searching for a solution in such a highdimensional space can be intractable. In this paper, we propose a method for finding high-dimensional solutions incrementally, by starting with an initial population of very small genomes and gradually complexifyingthose genomes by adding new genes over generations. That way… CONTINUE READING
