Artificial life properties of directed interaction combinators vs. chemlambda

12 May 2020  ·  M. Buliga ·

We provide a framework for experimentation at with two artificial chemistries: directed interaction combinators (dirIC, defined in section 2) and chemlambda. We are interested if these chemistries allow for artificial life behaviour: replication, metabolism and death... The main conclusion of these experiments is that graph rewrites systems which allow conflicting rewrites are better than those which don't, as concerns their artificial life properties. This is in contradiction with the search for good graph rewrite systems for decentralized computing, where non-conflicting graph rewrite systems are historically preferred. This continues the artificial chemistry experiments with chemlambda, lambda calculus or interaction combinators, available from the entry page at and described in arXiv:2003.14332. read more
