This library makes use of life, my Conway's Game of Life engine. It enables the client to create instances of a simulation for analysis. I plan on using this as a project for learning machine umm... learning.
Current status of analysis: It can only detect when the simulation goes into a cycle.
The biologistd binary provides a RESTful service for the creation and control of the simulations being analyzed.
For a GUI frontend, take a look at biologist-web
