Welcome to NEAT-Python’s documentation!¶
NEAT is a method developed by Kenneth O. Stanley for evolving arbitrary neural networks. NEAT-Python is a pure Python implementation of NEAT, with no dependencies other than the Python standard library.
Some of the example code has other dependencies; please see each example’s README.md file for additional details and installation/setup instructions for
the main code for each. In addition to dependencies varying with different examples, visualization of the results (via
visualize.py modules) frequently
requires graphviz and/or matplotlib. TODO: Improve
README.md file information for the examples.
Support for HyperNEAT and other extensions to NEAT is planned once the fundamental NEAT implementation is more complete and stable.
If you encounter any confusing or incorrect information in this documentation, please open an issue in the GitHub project.
