Brian Hicks, during an interview at E3 stated that a single player version(and locally hosted servers) of DayZ will be available near beta. Interesting turn of events based on some of the past standpoints.

of Augmenting Topologies), this project parallels how complex life evolved from simple beginnings.

More on NEAT can be read in this University of Texas paper. You will find great detail in the following articles:
