I am running a research project into using evolution and genetic algorithms to create simulated nervous systems. There are technical challenges as well as philosophical questions. I have been finding some interesting parallels to real world evolution (what I'm seeing as an amateur and naive biologist). I am a professional engineer.

I would like to get reaction and feedback from this group. Two installments have been produced.

Episode 1 - A bit long but describes the technical underpinnings.

Episode 2 - Shorter, more animated as a swimming creature is evolved

I am currently adding learned behaviors.

I have a larger goal of discussing how to create a platform to support this effort.
