Digient education: how might we teach artificial lifeforms?

Ted Chiang


Abstract:

This is a look under the hood of "The Lifecycle of Software Objects," a work of fiction about artificial lifeforms called "digients." I'll offer my rationales for the digients having the characteristics they have, and talk about the questions I was interested in exploring in writing the novella.
