Most current modeling for evolution of communication still underplays or ignores the role of local action in spatialized environments: the fact that it is immediate neighbors with which one tends to communicate, and from whom one learns strategies or conventions of communication. Only now are the… read more | Article
Grim, Patrick, Trina Kokalis, Ali Tafti and Nicholas Kilb. 1999. Evolution of communication with a spatialized genetic algorithm. Evolution of Communication 3:2, pp. 105–134
We extend previous work by modeling evolution of communication using a spatialized genetic algorithm which recombines strategies purely locally. Here cellular automata are used as a spatialized environment in which individuals gain points by feeding from drifting food sources and are 'harmed' if… read more | Article
