6 Data Driven Success Prediction of Evolution in Complex Environments

In fact, fitness is defined by biologists by means of the amount of an individual’s offspring capable of surviving to adulthood which is just complementary to a classic computer scientist’s point of view. With Evolutionary Robotics, a computer scientist has to face reality as it introduces an intermediate case between the two extremes: there is a desired goal toward which selection is supposed to push, but there is also a complex ...
