A New Self-Reproducing Cellular Automaton Capable of Construction and Computation
We present a new self-reproducing cellular automaton capable of construction and computation beyond self-reproduction. Our automaton makes use of some of the concepts developed by...

Contemporary Evolution Strategies
After an outline of the history of evolutionary algorithms, a new ( ) variant of the evolution strategies is introduced formally. Though not comprising all degrees of freedom, it i...

Can Development Be Designed? What we May Learn from the Cog Project
Neither `design' nor `evolutionary' approaches to building behavior-based robots feature a role for development in the genesis of behavioral organization. However, the n...

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 bio...

Orgy in the Computer: Multi-Parent Reproduction in Genetic Algorithms
In this paper we investigate the phenomenon of multi-parent reproduction, i.e. we study recombination mechanisms where an arbitrary n > 1 number of parents participate in creati...
