Multi-species skill-evolution: stages and assumptions

Simple skilled behaviours that are simulated to investigate the layers from the perspective of evolution, i.e. the fitness-biased mechanisms that copy skills from one generation to the next.

  1. Genomic evolution as the first and bottom layer.
  2. Apprenticeship mimicry as the second layer involving copying and learning directly observed skilled behaviour.
  3. In the third layer, symbolic communication is used to invoke and/or modify skills.
