Intellectual arms race: complication of state number in anti-max prisoner’s dilemma game

Intellectual arms race: complication of state number in anti-max prisoner’s dilemma game

Why are only human beings possessing many intellectual abilities among many creatures? The social brain hypothesis shows that human beings have increased their brains while reading the intentions of others. A relationship where each other reads the intention of others, cooperates or betrays it creates intelligence arms race competition. In this study, we simulated this kind of arms race by using evolutionary computation on finite automaton using games with three types of gain tables, and as a result confirmed whether the complexity of the agent is increased. As a result of the analysis, we found that the complexity of the agent ‘s strategy tree which got a high score increased with the gain condition requiring delay to compensation.

The findings of this research can be applied to interaction with artifacts that do not get bored.
