Comparison of evolutionary methods for smoother evolution
Hardware evolution methodologies come into their own in the construction of real-time adaptive systems. The technological requirements for such systems are not only high-speed evolution, but also steady and smooth evolution. This paper shows that the Progressive Evolution Model (PEM) and Diploid chromosomes contribute toward satisfying these requirements in the hardware evolutionary system AdAM (Adaptive Architecture Methodology). Simulations of an artificial ant problem using four combinations of two wets of variables — PEM vs. non-PEM, and Diploid AdAM vs. Haploid AdAM — show that the Diploid-PEM combination overwhelms the others.
