Toward open-ended fraternal transitions in individuality

Matthew Moreno & Charles Ofria
The emergence of new replicating entities from the union of simpler entities represent some of the most profound events in natural evolutionary history. Such transitions in individuality are essential to the evolution of the most complex forms of life. As such, understanding these transitions is critical to building artificial systems capable of open-ended evolution. Alas, these transitions are challenging to induce or detect, even with computational organisms. Here, we introduce the DISHTINY (DIStributed Hierarchical Transitions...
