Evolving Racing Cars Through Evolution Strategy
I was doing a Technorati surfing when I found an interesting post at Togelius blog: Evolutionary Car Racing Videos. It is a very nice post about an application of Evolution Strategies.
The owner of the blog, Julian Togelius, used an Evolution Strategy to evolve a set of Neural Networks to control the cars and he and his friend got interesting behaviours for their cars. The authors did not expect that those behaviours would be a little strange for some situations they cited. In his blog there are some videos about the experiments he made with the evolved cars. Enjoy it! :D
Take a look at the post, it is a very nice one!
