Cross Labs' Senior Researcher Lisa Soros

Cross Labs  Researcher, Lisa Soros, recently sat down with Lionbridge's Hengtee Lim, to talk about about evolutionary algorithms, developing open-ended systems, and why games are such a fertile environment for testing AI.

“With open-ended evolution, what we’re trying to replicate is a phenomenon like the big bang or the emergence of the first living cell,” says Soros. “On Earth this started from nothing, but also allowed for a host of complex things to exist—such as animals and plants—and a crazy amount of diversity within those living things.”
