Abstract

A developmental Artificial Neural Tissue (ANT) architecture inspired by the mammalian visual cortex is presented. It is shown that with the effective use of gene regulation that large phenotypes in the form of Artificial Neural Tissues do not necessarily pose an impediment to evolution. ANT includes a Gene Regulatory Network that controls cell growth/death arid activation/inhibition of the tissue based on a coarse-coding framework. This scalable architecture can facilitate emergent (self-organized) task decomposition and require limited task specific information compared with fixed topologies. Only a global fitness function (without biasing a particular task decomposition strategy) is specified and self-organized task decomposition is achieved through a process of gene regulation, competitive coevolution, cooperation and specialization.
