Evolutionary digital modeling

For the first portion of the evolutionary digital modeling (EDM) classes, we will go over what EDMs are and why they are used. Several experts who use EDMs in their research will give brief introductions to the three major types of EDMs.

Arend Hintze will be giving a 30-minute introduction to evolutionary game theory (EGT).

Chris Adami will be giving a 30-minute introduction to Avida / digital evolution.

Randy Olson will be giving a 20-minute introduction to embodied models of artificial life.


We will briefly go over the Avida homework assignment.
