Punctuation Equilibrium and Optimization: An A-Life Model

Ravi Jonnal and Anthony Chemero

In this paper, we discuss an A-Life experiment in which we evolve artificial neural network controllers for an animat. We compare fitness scores of for trials in which the neural networks are evolved with and without punctuated equilibriua. Finally, we discuss the way our findings relate to current debates in evolutionary biology.
