Complex Adaptive Systems

Genetic programming, a form of genetic algorithm that evolves programs and program-like executable structures, is a new paradigm for developing reliable, time- and cost-effective applications. The second volume of Advances in Genetic Programming highlights many of the most recent technical advances in this increasingly popular field.

Social Science from the Bottom Up
Proceedings of the Fourth International Conference on Simulation of Adaptive Behavior
Edited by Pattie Maes

From Animals to Animats 4 brings together the latest research at the frontier of an exciting new approach to understanding intelligence.

Proceedings of the First Annual Conference, July 28-31, 1996, Stanford University
Edited by John R. Koza
Situated Activity, Interactive Emergence, Evolution, and Human Thought
The First Tucson Discussions and Debates

The book includes considerations of the perceptual and motor abilities of animals as the evolutionary and conceptual foundation of more complex abilities; modeling focused as much on connections and constraints as on language and symbols; an interest in simple adaptive processes in animals and robots as the basis for more complex forms of learning and adaptation; and a consideration of animals and robots as integrated and situated systems in contrast to the reductionist and environment-free frameworks often seen in standard cognitive science.

Proceedings of the Fourth Annual Conference on Evolutionary Programming
Proceedings of the Fourth International Workshop on the Synthesis and Simulation of Living Systems

This book brings together contributions to the Fourth Artificial Life Workshop, held at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the summer of 1994.

Automatic Discovery of Reusable Programs

There is increasing interest in genetic programming by both researchers and professional software developers. These twenty-two invited contributions show how a wide variety of problems across disciplines can be solved using this new paradigm.

This exciting study explores the novel insight, based on well-established ethological principles, that animals, humans, and autonomous robots can all be analyzed as multi-task autonomous control systems.

Proceedings of the Second International Conference on Simulation of Adaptive Behavior
On the Programming of Computers by Means of Natural Selection

In this ground-breaking book, John Koza shows how this remarkable paradigm works and provides substantial empirical evidence that solutions to a great variety of problems from many different fields can be found by genetically breeding populations of computer programs.
