Differentiable Self-Organizing Systems

ALIFE 2021 Tutorial, July 20, 10:00-12:00 (CET)

Organizers: Alexander Mordvintsev, Ettore Randazzo, Eyvind Niklasson

Keywords: self-organization, differentiable programming, cellular automata, reaction-diffusion

In this tutorial we are going to cover the basic principles of using differentiable programming for building self-organizing systems, i.e. systems that consist of a large number of agents that reach global goals through local interactions. We are going to:
