Conference Proceeding
Dethlefs, N., & Turner, A. (2017). Transparency of execution using epigenetic networks. In C. Knibbe, G. Beslon, D. Parsons, D. Misevic, J. Rouzaud-Cornabas, N. Bredeche, …H. Soula (Eds.), Proceedings of the ECAL 2017, 404-411. doi:10.7551/ecal_a_068

This paper describes how the recurrent connectionist architecture epiNet, which is capable of dynamically modifying its topology, is able to provide a form of transparent execution. EpiNet, which is inspired by eukaryotic gene regulation in nature, i... Read More

Journal Article
Turner, A. P., Caves, L. S. D., Stepney, S., Tyrrell, A. M., & Lones, M. A. (2017). Artificial epigenetic networks: automatic decomposition of dynamical control tasks using topological self-modification. IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks and Learning Systems, 28(1), 218-230. https://doi.org/10.1109/TNNLS.2015.2497142

This paper describes the artificial epigenetic network, a recurrent connectionist architecture that is able to dynamically modify its topology in order to automatically decompose and solve dynamical problems. The approach is motivated by the behavior... Read More
