Project Title: Evolutionary Development of Human Society
The details of the rise and fall of human societies is much teorized on,
but not well understood. This knowledge is vital to organizing our future,
understanding our past and dealing with the present.
To enhance the understanding of the methods intrinsic to human
socioeconomic evolution and cultural interaction, a computer model will be
created. This computational model will create two or more societies,
modeled on the individual level and taking into account environmental
factors. These societies (and the individuals within them) will be
represented as variable length 'genomes'. Through methods of genetic
algorithms these genomes will be compared with other societies on such
basises as shall be deemed significant.
The described modeling will require large computational resources to
effect the simulation of societal evolution. The greater the resources,
the more accurate and detailed the model will be. The model will be as
accurate and detailed the model will be. this model will be as accurate
and unbiased towards any exsisting society as in computationally feasible.
