Researchers simulate 25,000 generations of evolution, boost artificial intelligence

Researchers boost artificial intelligence.

Engineers and robotics researchers from Cornell University have solved a biological mystery and boosted artificial intelligence. They recently simulated 25,000 generations of evolution within computers in their quest to answer why biological networks are likely to be organized as modules. This is a discovery that will lead to a better understanding of the evolution of complexity, according to a news release from Cornell.

Researchers believe that their discovery will also help evolve artificial intelligence, so robot brains can obtain the “grace and cunning” of animals.
