Tracking extrema in dynamic environments using a coevolutionary agent-based model of genotype edition
Typical applications of evolutionary optimization in static environments involve the approximation of the extrema of functions. For dynamic environments, the interest is not to locate the extrema but to follow it as closely as possible. This paper compares the extrema-tracking performance of a traditional Genetic Algorithm and a coevolutionary agentbased model of Genotype Editing (ABMGE). This model is constructed using several genetic editing characteristics that are gleaned from the RNA editing system as observed in several organisms. The incorporation of editing mechanisms provides a means for artificial agents with genetic descriptions to gain greater phenotypic plasticity. By allowing the family of editors and the genotypes of agents to coevolve using the re-generation of editors as a control switch for environmental changes, the artificial agents in ABMGE can discover proper editors to facilitate the tracking of the extrema in dynamic environments. We will show that this agent...
