Intelligent and Adaptive Animat Resource Trading
Trading of resources is an important sociological behaviour that is believed to be indicative of intelligent life forms, but which is non-trivial to model successfully. We have incorporated trading of resources that are critical to the survival of predator agents in a spatial predator-prey animat simulation model. We find that predator agents adapt to trade with one another in the face of extinction and that this leads to successful and stable dynamic equilibria between predators and prey. The spatial mixing properties of agents in our model system shift as a result of the trading patterns. We discuss these emergent phenomena and how they relate to microscopic model parameters and speculate as to how these ideas might be generalised to model trading patterns and markets.
