Digital Chemotaxis

Following Kees Weijer’s studies into self-organization in social amoebae, this work investigates the behaviour of agents whose motion is guided by waves of chemicals, but also themselves generate the chemical signals. This creates a rich system of complex feedback effects and emergent dynamic structures. Genetic algorithms and machine learning techniques are used to navigate the rich space of possibilities.
