Pool for Windows. - Gene Pool is an artificial life simulation where populations
of physics-based organisms evolve over time.
Artificial Life (HAL) - Lotus Artificial Life's Java cellular automata substrate
capable of supporting evolving, self-reproducing organisms which are capable of universal
Artificial Life, and creature behaviour - Java application simulates creature
behaviours and movement. Available for free download, including source code, and a paper
on Artificial Life.
Holland's ECHO - Echo is a simulation tool developed to investigate mechanisms
which regulate diversity and information-processing in systems comprised of many
interacting adaptive agents, or complex adaptive systems (CAS).
- JuhasWorld -
JuhasWorld: Yes it's alive! You have to see this applet to believe it. Just let those
actors evolve for a few generations and they suddenly seem quite clever indeed. Wait a few
more generations and you will be completely hooked: How good can they get?
Artificial Life - An extensive collection of macintosh alife programs fitting
into genetic algorithms, large swarms, evolutionary simulations, complex neural networks,
and other related subjects.
Mouse - Exploration of fitness landscapes.
Cellebration, 1D and 2D Cellular Automata viewer, editor and explorer - A
collection of information relating to cellular automata.
Homepage - Simulation of robots controlled by neuronal nets. They are learning
their behvour by means of neuro-evolution
Information (author's site) - Source of information, technical report, and source
code for the PolyWorld computational ecology, maintained by Larry Yaeger, PolyWorld's
author. (This site contains more up to date links and information than the PolyWorld page
at the Santa Fe Institute site.)
Information (Santa Fe Institute) - PolyWorld ecological simulator, designed and
written by Larry Yaeger.
Bird Island Productions - Simple world with automata that act to form complex
systems. Implimented on the Macintosh.
- Share-A-Life -
Share-A-Life can be used to design experiments in which variables are manipulated and one
measure the effects of these manipulations, to test hypotheses, and collect data to be
compared with real data. Althought Share-A-Life is an educational tool it can also be used
as a game.
Swarm Simulation System - The Swarm Simulation System
Virtual FishTank - Designed for people of all ages, the FishTank offers firsthand
experiences in creating artificial life forms and reveals how simple behavioral rules can
produce complex and surprising results.
home page - One of the first and the most influencial artificial environments
created originaly by Tom Ray.
