Evolution and Emergence / A New Creative Encounter
Date: April 20th Sunday 14:00 - 16:00
Venue: Tokyo Opera City, B1 Recital Hall
Biological evolution is nothing less than the process that has given
birth to a multiplicity of life forms on the planet. It just might
turn out to be most superior method of creativity.
In this session, we will discuss the future possibilities and thematics
of the latest computer science by introducing the recent involvements
with the most up-to-date computer science concerned with artificial
life and conductive artificial intelligence such as; "Cyber Darwin"
by Karl SIMS, a work that realized the evolutionary process of transformation
and selection through the interface between humans and computers;
the "biohistory" that gives an overview of the great drama
of biological evolution; "Tierra," the digital ecosystem
where digital lives can evolve freely and create new worlds; and an
autonomous agency where people in virtual space can enjoy interaction
with virtual creatures.
