Final Report - NEW TIES (New and emergent world models through individual, evolutionary, and social learning)

Project ID: 003752
Funded under: FP6-IST


This is the final activity report of the EC-funded New-ties project which sought to create an artificial society of virtual agents capable of exploring and developing its own view of its virtual world. The research was conducted using computer simulations where the ability to remain alive depended on developing certain behaviour, for instance herding or trading.

This document also describes the 'emergence engine', which drives population development and is based on individual, evolutionary and social learning. Very large populations were studied in order to examine highly complex organisms and behaviour. Remarks concerning the future activities of the consortium conclude the report.
