Artificial Life Technology for Adaptive Information Processing

  • Sung-Bae Cho
Part of the Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing book series (STUDFUZZ, volume 45)


Adaptation gives rise to a kind of complexity that greatly hinders our at­tempts to solve some of the most important problems currently posed by our world. Recently, there is an attempt to build a complex adaptive system, which is rich in autonomy and creativity, with the ideas and methodologies of Artificial Life (A-life). This chapter presents the concepts and methodologies of A-life, and shows some of the typical systems developed based on them. These systems cannot only develop new functionality spontaneously but also grow and evolve its own struc­ture autonomously. They have been applied to categorizing visual patterns, control­ling a mobile robot, developing adaptive agents on the WWW, and retrieving media databases based on human preference.
