[Welcome]

Lenka Pitonakova Welcome to my web site!
Please follow my Twitter feed if you would like to receive updates from my blog. My most important activities currently include:

PhD in swarm intelligence
The Hive Mind game: Collective construction with robots

What I've been recently up to

Task Allocation in Foraging Robot Swarms
Bee-inspired self-regulation algorithms for robot swarms that deliver items into a single drop-off location and need to prevent congestion.
How Coding in Python is Bad For You
7 reasons why coding in Python is like writing a really bad essay and getting away with it
Book Review: Waking, Dreaming, Being
What is the self? Is it the basic nature of the mind or is it something perceived by the mind? I'd really recommend the book to anyone interested in these questions, either from a scientific or a philosophical perspective.
Are Robot Swarms Like Brains?
I have recently explored a way of measuring how information flows within a robot swarm. I think that there is something intriguing behind this idea - a swarm's resemblance to the human brain.
Design Patterns for Robot Swarms
In software engineering, a design pattern associates a particular class of known problem with a particular class of effective solution. Analogously, swarm robot engineers would benefit from design patterns that each associate specific robot control schemes with desired collective performance. In this project, we characterise such design patterns for robot swarms in the context of collective foraging and task allocation.
