  abstract =     "Natural evolution inspires the fields of evolutionary
                 computation (EC) and artificial life (ALife). A
                 prominent feature of natural evolution is that it
                 effectively never ends. However, most EC and ALife
                 experiments are only run for several days or weeks at a
                 time. Once an experiment concludes, reproducing,
                 observing, or extending the results often requires
                 considerable effort. In contrast, some Collaborative
                 Interactive Evolution (CIE) systems, e.g. Picbreeder,
                 were designed to preserve results as potential stepping
                 stones to build upon later while taking advantage of
                 human insight to solve challenging problems.
                 Traditionally, building long-running and open
                 experiments similar to Picbreeder presents a complex
                 and time consuming software challenge. To reduce this
                 challenge and thereby remove the barrier to situating
                 almost any experiment within an interactive on line
                 framework, this paper presents the initial prototype
                 for Worldwide Infrastructure for Neuroevolution (WIN).
                 Built in the model of Picbreeder, WIN is a modular
                 library for significantly reducing the complexity of
                 creating fully persistent, online, and interactive
                 evolutionary platforms for any new or existing domain.
                 WIN Online, the public interface for WIN, provides an
                 online collection of domains built with WIN that lets
                 novice and expert users browse and meaningfully
                 contribute to ongoing experiments. Two example
                 experiments in this paper demonstrate WIN's potential
                 to quickly bootstrap any evolutionary domain with
                 online and interactive capabilities.",
