So wandering around in-world on Bank Holiday Monday, I pop over to Lindens place in SL where I find a list of educational establishments in SL. One of them caught my eye, it was the SL Ecosystem a collaborative experiment creating Artificial Life (AL), presumably using scripting.
As you can see from the picture the AL’s are quite primitive, but as things get more sophisticated were could it lead? Is SL a natural environment for AL lifeforms, it certainally seems so, but I think the language may be too primitive yet to create anything decent at the moment.
Still it’s a start.
