Maker Faire 2014 - The Ecology of Artificial Life
Diseases, Preadators and Ecosystems

 

 

 

 

some models to get started


get these from the NetLogo models library...

 

 

predation


 

 

disease


contagion -- how diseases spread on contact
human vs mosquito -- how the malaria parasite spreads through humans and mosquitos

 

 

evolution & adaptation


NOTE: for these models you must also download sxl-utils.nls -- a collection of utils which should be placed in the same folder as the models.

 

 

 

models using "smarter" algorithms


L-Systems -- grow shapes with a generative grammar
lost pigs -- rescue pigs lost in a maze

 


And finally here is an interview with Simon by Maker Faire visitors from make things do stuff.
