Emergent self-replicating software from my experiments
In the previous episode, I provided a description of “Amoeba.” In this episode I use “Figures,” which is my own experiment with digital organisms and artificial life, to repeat the results of Andy Pargellis’s Amoeba experiment, with a few differences. I also give the most detailed explanation of my subleq based system to date, as I compare and contrast it with Tierra and Amoeba.
Here are links to episodes relevant to today’s episode
Ep 143: Emergent self-replication with Amoeba
Ep 103: Tierra, bits bytes and life
Here’s a blog post that describes what subleq is and how it works.
The prime, and only, directive.
Here’s a video that provides a decent introduction to artificial life and digital organisms.
