The following dissertation outlines one possible answer to this question, including an example game-like problem and a Genetic Algorithm (GA) inspired solution.<br /><br />The Genetic Algorithm described acts upon a population of game playing computer agents. Each agent contains a set of expressible instructions, composed of simple axiomatic behaviours representative of the games world model. The instruction lists are evolved through an iterative process of game playing in opposition to a human. The game played is called Symbibots, a simple two-dimensional shooting game. The human player uses the same genetic mechanism as the GA to co-evolve their own game-playing agent. Both the computer and the player are required to try to shoot each other with missiles, collect energy to stay active, and outlive one another to the next game round. Any "intelligent" and adaptive behaviour seen in the computer agent population is a result of evolution and the emergent complexity of their instruction set.<br />Symbiosis Graph<br /><br />??a* a*?

Originally, I had the ambitious idea of bringing all of these concepts together: modelling cell interaction including models of molecules crossing virtual membranes, leading to higher-level effects like quorum sensing. Obviously, this early idea was way out of the scope of my knowledge and ability; let alone what I could accomplish in one year for a Bachelors degree. However, I still wanted to do a project that incorporated all of the biology, artificial life and artificial intelligence topics I was passionate about. I thought carefully on how I could relate these ideas to a Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence specific project. The concepts I found of interest in biology were all genetic and evolutionary operations. It seemed appropriate to try to wed these concepts from Biology with a Genetic Algorithm of some kind, since this is the analogous paradigm within the field of Artificial Intelligence.<br /><br />GA Package UML Design<br /><br />The result of this idea was Symbibots, a single player two-dimensional shooting game with the look and feel of a dirty puddle of Zooplankton. Symbibots attempts to be an expandable, general platform for investigating the use of Genetic Algorithms with agent based computer simulations. Currently Symbibots has not quite achieved this, but the program design and user interface allows for future development towards this goal.
