This is a follow-up to the first article about training creatures to walk using neural networks and genetic algorithms. The next creature I decided to train is a worm. Here’s the result (generation ~200).

I remember seeing Karl Sims’ video Evolved Virtual Creatures a long time ago. I was completely stunned but unfortunately forgot about it for many years. I was reminded of it again last year when reading about training neural networks using genetic algorithms and decided to evolve my own creatures.
