Why is the status of artificial life software so under-developed?

I don’t know for certain, but I can make a guess. This is just my opinion, some others may disagree. The field of ALife has four branches that I’m aware of: Self-Organizing/self assembly behavior. ...

Has the spontaneous emergence of replicators been modeled in Artificial Life?

Systems Approach Let's set out to replicate a real time system $S: \mathcal{X} \Rightarrow \mathcal{Y} \; | \; I$, where $\mathcal{X}$ is a empirical continuous history of input and $\mathcal{Y}$ ...

What would be the best way to disable a rogue AI?

Metaphorically: make it so depressed it commits suicide. As per my answer to this AI SE question, the idea is to feed it a sequence of inputs that will cause it to become (permanently) inactive. The ...

What would be the best way to disable a rogue AI?

Nuke it from orbit - it's the only way to be sure If you want to be really sure you destroy everything of the AI, you'll need to launch an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) from the orbit (there are ...

Has the spontaneous emergence of replicators been modeled in Artificial Life?

Although difficult to prove a negative, I don't think that this has been done. The most advanced simulations of low-level features are not capable of scaling to simulate large enough populations at ...

What would be the best way to disable a rogue AI?

If an AI is developed by humans, we surely can create another one! Develop another AI agent without all the possible bugs that can make it go rogue to tackle the rogue AI, but more technically ...

Why aren't 3d printers and robotic arms already used to create the first versions of self-replicating machines?

We also discussed this topic at physics.stackexchange, take a look at physics related issues there. To summarize all the comments there, here is my answer to this topic as a complilation of all issues ...

Why aren't 3d printers and robotic arms already used to create the first versions of self-replicating machines?

The problem is accuracy degrades exponentially and no 3d printed part today can accurately fix the accuracy issue. The other issue is, to make modern things requires a ridiculous amount of specialized ...

Has the spontaneous emergence of replicators been modeled in Artificial Life?

It's yes in cellular automata space, you have this old one from 1997: "Emergence of self-replicating structures in a cellular automata space" http://fab.cba.mit.edu/classes/S62.12/docs/...
