Studying Artificial Life Using a Simple, General Cellular Model

  title={Studying Artificial Life Using a Simple, General Cellular Model},
  author={Moshe Sipper},
  journal={Artificial Life},
Some of the major outstanding problems in biology are related to issues of emergence and evolution. These include: (a) how populations of organisms traverse their adaptive landscapes; (b) what the relation between adaptedness and fitness is; and (c) the formation of multicellular organisms from basic units or cells. In this article we study these issues using a model that is both general and simple. The system, derived from the CA (cellular automata) model, consists of a two-dimensional grid of… CONTINUE READING
