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





some models to get started

get these from the NetLogo models library...







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.
