Our paper “An Evolutionary Nano-Agent Control Architecture for Intelligent Artificial Creatures” has been presented at the 14th International Symposium on Artificial Life and Robotics (AROB) in Beppu (Japan) last february. Here is the abstract of the paper: This paper describes a new multi-agent architecture for the Evolutionary Virtual Agent project. It introduces the nano-agent bio-inspired control architecture and its nanoScheme programming language. A typical application consists of one or more nano-agents, and possibly up to a large number if necessary as in natural swarms. As an example, it describes an online self-animated character that uses natural language and emotional expressions. This virtual character is based on a “schizophrenic” model composed of multiple distinct personalities, each with its own pattern of perceiving and interacting with the user.
