Self-protection and diversity in self-replicating cellular automata

, : Self-protection and diversity in self-replicating cellular automata. Artificial Life 10(1): 83-98

The concept of self-protection, a capability of an organism to protect itself from exogenous attacks, is introduced into the design of artificial evolutionary systems as a possible method to create and maintain diversity in the population. Three different mechanisms of self-protection are considered and implemented on a cellular-automaton-based evolutionary system, the evoloop. Simulation results imply a positive effect of those mechanisms on diversity maintenance, especially when the self-protection is moderate so that it conserves both the attacker and the attacked. This letter briefly reports the models and the simulation results obtained using those models.
