Fig.2. A 3rd order hyper-structure representation of a system similar to SANE. Only the fitness returned from the highest level is concrete and there must be certain policies to distribute this fitness between individual agents from the lower level.
The Self-Organizing Symbiotic Agent
SANE can solve easy tasks in just a few generations, while in tests that require high precision, its progress often stalls and is exceeded by standard network-level evolution.
The Self-Organizing Symbiotic Agent
In a hierarchical version of SANE is introduced that uses two levels of evolution and overcomes the problem noted above. In this method, two loops of genetic evolution are used, increasing the order of the hyper-structure.
The Self-Organizing Symbiotic Agent
The SANE approach could be thought of as evolving neural sub-networks that best fit a multitude of complete neural networks. If each neuron is taken as a structure of order 1, the sub-networks are examples of second order structures and the neural networks are hyper-structures of order 3.
The Self-Organizing Symbiotic Agent
Of course, no sane person would try to implement such a stupid algorithm; its interest is theoretical.
