The NEW TIES project is growing an artificial society using computer programming that develops agents--or adaptive, artificial beings--that have independent behaviours. The project is the first of its kind to develop a large-scale and highly complex computer-based society. The project's results may have larger implications for information technologies design, evolutionary computing systems, artificial intelligence and linguistics.

Oh yeah, they are using the SOURCE engine to do it.

This is something that both excites me and scares me, but whatever :p

I saw this a while back and read somewhere that it was a hoax. Don't quote me on that though.

If it was real, wouldn't the computers that have to process all of this info have to be insainly powerful?

You can get supercomputers with linked processors that take up entire rooms.

I hope this is real, I read it and it seems very cool, I love stuff like this.

Nice thread title btw ;)

Don't take the red pill... x_x

And yeah, some universities and places don't even have big supercomputers, they have labs full of PCs and Macs that think they are. Distributed computing ftw!

Interesting.

But, Dewd, where does it say they're using the Source engine for this?

If I remember, Source is going to be used to render the visual representation of the world.

Eh, if they can make an agent make woohoo with another agent, then I'll be impressed.
