Is Open-Ended Evolutionary Innovation in a Quarantined System Possible? INNOCENTIVE 6409250
During the evolution of life on Earth new biological features have emerged in a process that continues without reaching an obvious maximum level of organized complexity, even now. The Seeker is interested to know if this apparently open-ended evolutionary innovation would be possible in a quarantined system. If so, can it be demonstrated? The goal of this theoretical challenge is to come up with an acceptable demonstration design to provide a positive result. The Challenge – Design the best way to achieve a demonstration of open-ended evolutionary innovation (OEEI) in a quarantined system (QS) whose outcome can be judged without dispute. The demonstration may be proposed to take place in a biological culture, a computer model, or any medium that can do the job. If an acceptable design is found, the actual physical demonstration will be requested in a subsequent Reduction to Practice (RTP) challenge for a significantly larger award. Read More
