Genetic programming and artificial life systems commonly employ tag-matching schemes to determine interactions between model components. However, the implications of criteria used to determine affinity between tags with respect to constraints on emergent connectivity, canalization of changes to connectivity under mutation, and evolutionary dynamics have not been considered. We highlight differences between tag-matching criteria with respect to geometric constraint and variation generated under…

What else is in an evolved name? Exploring evolvable specificity with SignalGP

TLDR
How adjusting the threshold for how what qualifies as a match affects adaptive evolution is explored and broadened applications of tags in the context of a genetic programming technique called SignalGP are proposed.

Tag-based modularity in tree-based genetic programming

TLDR
It is shown here how tag-based modules can be incorporated into a more standard tree-based genetic programming system and results obtained using the technique on problems for which other modularization techniques have been shown to be useful.

Acquiring evolvability through adaptive representations

TLDR
Three neural network representations, a direct encoding, a complexifying encoding, and an implicit encoding capable of adapting the genotype-phenotype mapping are compared on Nothello, acomplex game playing domain from the AAAI General Game Playing Competition.

Tag-based modules in genetic programming

TLDR
It is demonstrated that tag-based modules readily evolve and that this allows problem solving effort to scale well with problem size and is effective even in complex, non-uniform problem environments for which previous techniques perform poorly.

What’s in an Evolved Name? The Evolution of Modularity via Tag-Based Reference

TLDR
This chapter describes a new approach to names in genetic programming that is based on Holland’s concept of tags, and demonstrates the use of tag-based names and describes some of the ways in which they may help to extend the power and reach of genetic programming systems.

Tag-based regulation of modules in genetic programming improves context-dependent problem solving

TLDR
It is found that tag-based regulation improves problem-solving performance on context-dependent problems; that is, problems where programs must adjust how they respond to current inputs based on prior inputs.

Evolution of cooperation without reciprocity

TLDR
Computer simulations are used to show that cooperation can arise when agents donate to others who are sufficiently similar to themselves in some arbitrary characteristic, or ‘tag’, which can be a marking, display, or other observable trait.
