Contextual Genetic Algorithms: Evolving Developmental Rules
A genetic algorithm scheme with a stochastic genotype/phenotype relation is proposed. The mechanisms responsible for this intermediate level of uncertainty, are inspired by the biological system of RNA editing found in a variety of organisms. In biological systems, RNA editing represents a significant and potentially regulatory step in gene expression. The artificial algorithm here presented, will propose the evolution of such regulatory steps as an aid to the modeling of differentiated development of artificial organisms according to environmental, contextual, constraints. This mechanism of genetic string editing will then be utilized in the definition of a genetic algorithm scheme, with good scaling and evolutionary properties, in which phenotypes are represented by mathematical structures based on fuzzy set and evidence theories.
