Arti cial life uses computer models to study the essential nature of the characteristic processes of complex adaptive systems| proceses such as self-organization, adaptation, and evolution. Work in the eld is guided by the working hypothesis that simple computer models can capture the essential nature of these processes. This hypothesis is illustrated by recent results with a simple population of computational agents whose sensorimotor functionality undergo open-ended adaptive evolution. These… CONTINUE READING
