Algorithm evolution toward AI?
« on: October 09, 2015, 10:10:17 am »
Hi all,

How does life work. Living things are just here to carry DNA, make it evolve, and make it last as long as possible, possibly forever.

Now, imagine a software engine, like NodeJS for instance: easy to use, portable, cross-platform. This engine could execute all sorts of useful or funny programs. But instead of downloading programs from a central server like npm, users would have to transfer programs from other users, kinda like torrents.

But these "transfers" would never be accurate. An imported program would never be an accurate copy: during the transfer, the exporting engine would deliberately modify a little bit the "DNA" of the program.

Only useful or pleasant programs would survive and get a chance to be transfered to new users.

What do we get then? AGI?

(Am I being understandable?)

It's a crowdsourced project of filtering many useful javascript programs. AGI would know how to combine them to get something else useful. Right now it is users' job.
Dream big. The bigger the dream is, the more beautiful place the world becomes.

It wouldn't be js, since it's not a good language for genetic programming. A concatenative language like Push3 would fit better.

Users would act as usual, only picking apps from a list. These apps would then evolve through natural selection.

Have you checked out the creatures game? It did something similar to what you are suggesting.
So sue me

That's right, I remember this nice game. So yes, it would be similar, but with apps instead of creatures.
