Adaptation, Punctuation, and Rate Distortion: Non-cognitivèlearning Plateaus' in Evolutionary Process

Abstract

Extending recent information-theoretic phase transition approaches to evolutionary and cognitive process via the Rate Distortion Theorem in the circumstance of interaction with a structured environment suggests that learning plateaus in cognitive systems and punctuated equilibria in evolutionary process are formally analogous, even though evolution is most… (More)
