Artifical Chemistry

From The EvoGrid: The Evolution Technology Grid

Jump to: navigation, search

A starting point for Artificial Chemistries on EvoGrid could be to implement Tim Hutton's self-reproducing two-dimensional cell, which was abandoned due to lack of computational power and a change of career but is still the only AC to get close to ALife. [1] It has a complete set of genome, membrane, and metabolism and has demonstrated self-reproduction. The down-side is that it is not a format amenable to evolution --- the system has little capacity for novelty.
