NEW-TIES : Counter Strike + The Ultimate Question of Life

July 18th, 2005 | Filed under: AI, Internet, Programming, Social, Virtual Reality | No Comments »

The NEW TIES project, an acronym for New and Emergent World models Through Individual, Evolutionary and Social Learning, is a virtual society (graphics base on Counter Strike’s source engine) of about 1000 agents with complex behavioural programs that may, but probably won’t answer the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything. The programming interface is planned to be available to the public, allowing reasearchers to conduct their own experiments on a virtual society. The project’s goal is to evolve an artificial society capable of exploring and understanding its environment through cooperation and interaction. The agents are sufficiently complex and their environment demanding, which enables them to develop a communication system to learn how to cooperate and to adapt.
