GOOGLE EARTH, PEPSI MOON

MAPS, MODELS AND SYNTHETIC WORLDS Researchers will first design new types of agents along with the DNA and memory these types of agents will have using the design interfaces of the Integrated Development Environment (IDE). The design interfaces also allow the DNA and memory of existing agent types to be modified. After creating new agent […]
