This is a continuing experiment in applying genetic algorithms to neural simulations. Here is a video outlining the experiment. Many of you probably found this site from this presentation.
I will be adding more information and discussion over time. I am working on a set of instructions as the interface is not clear or well designed. Please be patient as this is a work in progress.
For now, here are links to:
Release Notes (including CRASH notes)
Episode 2: The Next Generation
Next version has been released:
This one is more animated as the creatures can now swim. Updated source code coming.
Episode 3: A Better Guppie
This one can run an obstacle course better.
Episode 4: Pattern Recognition And Memory
This was inspired by a PhD student running a similar experiment using spiking neural networks.
