Coevisualizer: Visualize coevolutionary simulations

What it is: I built the Coevisualizer framework to help design, experiment with, and visualize coevolutionary simulations. A few of these were published as part of my paper for the AAAI Fall Symposium 2005 in Washington D.C.: AAAI Technical Report FS-05-03 Coevolutionary and Coadaptive Systems (PDF). I've recently picked up development on this project again in order to simulate the effects of driving a coevolutionary process with the Teacher's Dilemma (publications forthcoming.)

In addition to the simulator itself, I've included a variety of coevolutionary algorithms, a variety of task domains (mostly numbers game variants), and a few representation choices for individuals in each domain. Also included are a number of particularly interesting sample runs (that can be re-run from the included configuration files.) No source code is provided at this time.

If you download Coevisualizer, I suggest subscribing to the RSS feed (graphic at top) so you'll be notified about new releases.
