A neural network is an information system that is modeled after the human brain and nervous system. The network consists of a large number of units that are separated into 3 separate types (1) input units, (2) output units, and (3) hidden units. These units model the 3 units of the human nervous system (1) ...
One of the base things I must accomplish in the creation of a software program that emmulates the evolution and survival of life is a simplistic method of animating graphical objects. The graphics will be able to “see” and therefore will sense when they come in close contact with other objects. After a bit of research and development, I found an existing program, written in Java, that does just this.
The artificial life simulation will take into account the cycle of ...
The following code transforms the struggle for survival into a mathematical equation. A user is asked to enter a number of carnivores to create between 1 – 100. Once the number has been decided, the plants, herbivores and carnivores reproduce contingent on a specific ratio between plants:herbivores:carnivores or 16:6:2.
The program takes 3 separate life forms plants, herbivores and carnivores and increases or decreases their reproduction rate depedent on their ratio in comparison to the other life forms. A ratio of ...
I have many software projects that I have been working on. One of my favorites is an Artificial Life Simulation. I will be using the blog portion of mikestratton.net to keep a running record of my work. The Artificial Life Simulation is being developed in Java.
Artificial Life Simulation Overview
Create a simulation that emulates life and evolution.
The simulation is governed by the same rules that govern our world. Graphic
objects in simulation represent life forms and environmental objects. Life

Big O notation: Indicates the worse-case run time for an algorithm–that is, how hard an algorithm may have to work to solve a problem.
Big O example:
Suppose an algorithm is designed to test whether the first element of an array is equal to the second. If the array has 10 elements, this algorithm requries one comparison. If the array has 15,000 elements, it still requires one comparison. In fact, the algorithm is completely independent of ...
