Iñaki Fernández Pérez, postdoc dans l'équipe REVA, nous parlera de ses travaux intitulés "Artificial Life, Swarm Robotics and Embodied Evolution: Solving Problems Looking at Nature": La conference se tiendra en anglais.

Abstract

In this talk, which is meant to  be interactive, after introducing myself, I will present using a set of examples
the link between nature and the scientific field of artificial life. I will begin by providing a vision of what do I consider
as nature with respect to my vision of artificial life as a research field. I will show very recent examples of ALife
work by colleagues in the field from all over the world: collective movement, insect-inspired robots, plant-inspired robots, artificial evolution, neurorobots, and other systems. Then, I will quickly introduce Swarm Robotics, as well as the approach of Embodied Evolution for the design and autonomous adaptation of behaviors in swarms of robots, describing part of my contributions to this algorithmic family. Finally, I will provide my (subjective and surely biased) vision of the field of Artificial Life itself.
