[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

Coding for tomorrow: Why is good code important?
"Why should I care about how my code is written, as long as it works?" I will argue here that well-structured and well-written code not only saves time on a project, it also helps you to invest your time in a way that is meaningful for your future work.
The Hive Mind
The Hive Mind is a sci-fi puzzle game about insect-inspired construction with robots. The player takes on the role of an Overseer who was sent to an alien planet and designs simple rules that robots use to create structures brick by brick.
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.

7 reasons why coding in Python is like writing a really bad essay and getting away with it
Book Review: Waking, Dreaming, Being
