Nature of Code Final: Progress
For my final NoC project, I am working in collaboration with Chang Liu. We are expanding my midterm project and applying new algorithms to simulate an ecosystem, giving life to digital creatures through behaviors like chasing food, avoiding predators, looks for partners, etc.
We have researched on Genetic Algorithms, and inspired by actual events and ecosystems in real world. We looked in the core principles behind evolutionary strategies in software, and are developing a set of algorithms inspired by these principles. We want our creatures to mate, reproduce and evolve over time.
Our idea is to build an interactive installation that creates an interaction between human and programming/computer.
