Martin Jones - Using evolution to win the Iterated Prisoners Dilemma game

The Prisoners Dilemma is the best known example of a game that can be explained using game theory, and the iterated version has been a platform for exploring different strategies. In this talk I’ll describe a couple of approaches that have recently been used to generate novel strategies which score more highly than previous ones. The talk will be based on the Axelrod Python library.
