A SIMULATION ENVIRONMENT FOR EVOLVING MULTIAGENT COMMUNICATION
Reggia, James A.
MetadataShow full item record
A simulation environment has been created to support study of emergent communication. Multiple agents exist in a two-dimensional world where they must find food and avoid predators. While non-communicating agents may survive, the world is configured so that survival and fitness can be enhanced through the use of inter-agent communication. The goal with this version of the simulator is to determine conditions under which simple communication (signaling) emerges and persists during an evolutionary process.
