Darwin robot theory !


Darwin incredible! Robotics specialists based in Switzerland, have developed a simulation program that allows virtual organisms (which were the origin of real robots) to feed by collecting virtual disk to be cloned by following a process called natural. Indeed, it is robots that fit best with the right to multiply. Each "cloning", some variables change randomly, which directly impacts the robot to be emerging more or less hard to collect food. The lowest disappear. The robot is programmed to pick up a max of food to be cloned and so spread their genes.
Once well established this simulation, the researchers incorporated a new feature: The ability for robots to share their food as they wish.
According to the theory of Hamilton, a biologist of the 60s, the altruism of sharing such food with another family member would be guided by the need to propagate our genes. Whether for animals or for us if we help people who are genetically close to us, because we want to continue without knowing our genetic heritage that is in us but also within our family .
To prove this theory, our scientists Switzerland has run the simulation, and after several generations of "virtual robots", they noted that robots help each other by sharing each small disc, so that the group is a relatively equal level of food, and everyone can survive in the simulation and be cloned. If a robot gives his food to another, it disappears ... it disagrees, but he survives his "brother" dies ... etc.. Equitable sharing and mutual aid is a good solution for both personal survival of their genes and that of their families.

    Now I'm caught in the middle
    You're next to me
    I swim with the fishes
    You come from the sea
    The dolphins were monkeys that didn't like the land
    Walked back to the water
    Went back from the sand
    The dolphins were monkeys that didn't like the land
    Should I be walking the beach
    Then I'd be holding your hand (yeaaa)
