Genetic Animal Adapatation Optimization
School: La Cueva High
Area of Science: Behavioral and Social Sciences
Proposal: Animal adaptations are very important for species to survive and flourish. Adaptations occur because of some change or manipulation in their environment or surroundings. All sorts of variables can lead to the extinction of animals, but if we can figure out what variables can be manipulated, while still having the “self-healing” ability or adaptive ability, we could determine the optimal parameters for maintaining a healthy ecosystem. The goal of this project is to study AI models of both the predator and prey with the manipulation of the placement of food resources and animals and the mutation rate to determine the best parameters for a system using NetLogo.
