The system BioAnt, presented here, is an artificial life system that simulates an environment with ants. Each ant moves inside the environment on the basis of a biologically plausible artificial neural network, which employs the algorithm GeneRec for supervised learning. In order to obtain an initial configuration, a symbolic algorithm (based on a set of production rules) was created. The environment itself is three-dimensional and consists of the anthill, sugar, water, earth elevations, walls… CONTINUE READING
