In this paper, we investigate a neutral epoch during an optimisation run with complex genotype-to-fitness mapping. The behaviour of the search process during neutral epochs is of importance for evolutionary robotics and other artificial-life approaches that evolve problem solutions; recent work has argued that evolvability may change during these epochs. We investigate the distribution of offspring fitnesses from the best individuals of each generation in a population-based genetic algorithm… CONTINUE READING
