How swarm size during evolution impacts the behavior, generalizability, and brain complexity of animats performing a spatial navigation task

24 Apr 2018Dominik FischerSanaz MostaghimLarissa Albantakis

While it is relatively easy to imitate and evolve natural swarm behavior in simulations, less is known about the social characteristics of simulated, evolved swarms, such as the optimal (evolutionary) group size, why individuals in a swarm perform certain actions, and how behavior would change in swarms of different sizes. To address these questions, we used a genetic algorithm to evolve animats equipped with Markov Brains in a spatial navigation task that facilitates swarm behavior... (read more)
