Abstract

This paper introduces a new mechanism using Tit-ForTat-like strategy that successfully promotes cooperation in the Iterated Prisoner's Dilemma game. The mechanism is based on a corollary of our previously presented kinship hypothesis; cooperation can emerge when players tend to cooperate with players having similar genotypes but tend to defect to players having dissimilar genotypes. A theoretical motivation for the new mechanism is presented as well as experimental results supporting the theory. The experimental results show that the kinship biased conditional cooperation greatly improves the survival of cooperative individuals, eventually driving the population to cooperating equilibrium.
