Organism Network Architecture

This work delves into the concept of self-replicating neural networks, focusing on how backpropagation facilitates the emergence of complex, self-replicating behaviors. Dropout By evaluating different network types, the study highlights the natural emergence of robust self-replicators and explores their behavior in artificial chemistry environments. A significant extension over a previous version, this research offers a deep analysis of fixpoint weight configurations and their attractor basins, advancing the understanding of neural network self-replication.
