I saw this a while back and can no longer find it. It was a program that randomly created these block creatures that had to self-learn how to move.
Two of these creatures were created in one a round on a map and given a task, get to a square in the middle. The first one there was kept to go on to
the next round while the other was erased. They kept doing this and it went normal until one creature learned that if it killed the other creature
first, it would always win. So, the creature every round would kill the other one and go to the block in the middle and win. after a couple of rounds,
the program was deleted for fear of what else it might do.
I was wondering if anyone could give me the name of this program or the study or help me find someone who would know. It was on a ted talk so if you
know the name of it that would be great if you could give it to me.
