Subtitle: search a al system for my Flash 5 based presentation layer..
Hello academics, :)
because yesterday it's rain in my town, I don't want to see a movie a
second time and I want to relax from my normal work, I play with
technologies ideas in my mind.
So if you interested in artificial life systems it can be funny to read the
ideas of a playfully guy. ;-)
The first result of my game you can see at http://weta.sourceforge.net
the header frame.
Since a long time I have the idea to write a java open source frame work
for al lego mindstorms robots.
Because this is a job for some years, the mindstorm set is to expansive for
me right now and I want to focus on the weta project, that can be a module
for the al frame work I don't start the to realize this idea. But you
remember it was raining. ;-)
So if the in the al project the presentation layer is separate from the
rest, why to don't start with macromedia flash 5? :) see. at
Right now I have flash movie with a xml based tcp ip real time connection
to a java server, a friend and me had written last year.
In the flash movie I have a creature, this creature is represent as an user
in my server. Now the creature can communicate with all other creatures,
only some selected (Usergroup) or only with one other creature. (all XML
based.) After the communication possibilities my creature can perceive
something. Of cures as first the creature can perceive a communication from
a other creature. Than the creature can perceive resources and there
position in the room. This parameter can be customized, so only resource in
special angles or in a special room depth. At least my creature can do
something eg. Go to a point in the room, eat, reproduce. The creature have
unlimted metadates, some are used in the flash movie. Eg. How fast can the
creature move, how strong is the creature, healthiness, consumed resources
and so on...
To control all these functions I have implement a interface that can be
controlled from the server in real-time to a website! :)
Right know I have implement a simple functionality in the flash movie them
self. See resources and eat them. ;-) like the Cookie Monster.
Now my creatures need intelligence. ;-)
I can implement a class in my server that's log all perception events and
creature actions. These creature logfile my be can analyse be a weka class.
The result can be use to handle future perception and followed actions.
So the logfile can be time separate perception and action sequences and
weight them in 0 or 1, means in good for the creature and bad for it. The
creatures is forced to do in future times only action sequences after a
perception that are good for the creature. For this job it can help full to
cluster perceive and action sequences to extract aberrances. These
aberrances can used to abstract perceptions and associate it easier to a
But seriously if some know a free weka based al project, please tell me, My
be I can use to connect with my "weta" flash movie to create intelligence
UML is available.
