rdex is an installation that explores in an autonomous hyperspace mathematical model, searching for interesting emergent behaviour (life-alike, alife). Currently under active development, here's a 5m30s demo video of the rdex-server in action:
Warning: contains bright colour patterns, be careful if you're sensitive to that kind of thing.
rdex-server provides different metrics for sorting the database of gathered interesting emergent behavious samples that are similar in some way:
- compares input parameter space points
- compares output image colour histograms
- compares output image texture features
- compares output image contiguous regions
rdex-server source code is available under AGPL3+ license, but be warned it's still under development, and might be totally broken at times.
