The NEW TIES project is growing an artificial society that develops software agents – adaptive, artificial beings – that have independent behaviours.
The project aims to develop a large-scale and highly complex computer-based society.
The results may have larger implications for information technologies design, evolutionary computing systems, artificial intelligence and linguistics.
NEW TIES is a research project funded by the European Commission.
