Evolutionary Robotics and the Radical Envelope-of-Noise Hypothesis

  title={Evolutionary Robotics and the Radical Envelope-of-Noise Hypothesis},
  author={Nick Jakobi},
  journal={Adaptive Behaviour},
For several years now, various researchers have endeavored to apply artificial evolution to the automatic design of control systems for real robots. One of the major challenges they face concerns the question of how to assess the fitness of evolving controllers when each evolutionary run typically involves hundreds of thousands of such assessments. This article outlines new ways of thinking about and building simulations upon which such assessments can be performed. It puts forward sufficient… CONTINUE READING
