Co-evolution for Communication: An EHW Approach

Yasser Baleghi Damavandi (Iran University of Science and Technology, Iran)

Karim Mohammadi (Iran University of Science and Technology, Iran)

Abstract: Evolvable Hardware (EHW) is a new concept that aims the application of evolutionary algorithms to hardware design. EHW can adapt itself to unknown environment based on features of the reconfigurable hardware. This paper presents outlines of the idea of using some EHW agents in a distributed system. These agents need to set up a self-organized communication to achieve the predesigned goal. The experiment that is demonstrated during the presentation, is to distribute a serial adder into two EHW parts, where good results has been shown in a co-evolutionary process.

Keywords: co-evolution, emergent communication, evolvable hardware, genetic algorithm
