What is Artificial Life?
Artificial Life (ALife) is a field which studies the properties of life and how the processes of living systems can be recreated synthetically.
Many of the ideas and concepts from AI Alignment overlap with those in ALife. In particular, questions about autonomy, agency and goal-directedness in artificial systems.
