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.

Lots of Robots at IROS in Germany

I have just returned from the IROS conference that took place in Hamburg, Germany. The conference name stands for Intelligent Robots and Systems and it was a huge event full of talks and exhibitions about robotics. While the atmosphere was very professional, the spirit of Oktoberfest, a traditional German celebration of beer and German culture that happens between September and October, managed to blend in very well.

How will artificial life impact the future?

In 2013, I was a part of the TRUCE workshop at the Alife conference. The workshop brought together scientists and creative writers in order to create a cool book full of stories about A-life (artificial life) and artificial intelligence and about how it will impact our society in the future. As I am very interested in swarm robotics, sci-fi games and movies and generally how the future will look like when robots run around and are part of our everyday lives, I jumped at the opportunity to cooperate on the project.

I have finally put a beginning of an artificial brain to my Ultrastable Neuroendocrine Robot - UNER... my lego robot can now measure inputs from its 3 front proximity sensors and individual cells in its brain get activated when it sees something

Attributes of ultrastability as an adaption mechanism in a hormone-modulated neural robot controller were investigated in a simulation. Action-selection based on hormone-driven utilities of memory items was used to alternate between mineral gathering and recharging.

A robot neural controller where obstacle-avoidance and random-walk neurons observe level of their irritation and randomly reconfigure their connections to motors when the irritation reaches a specified threshold is presented and tested.

Neural Networks and the Evolution of Cooperation

The paper investigates artificial evolution of cooperation in the Iterated Prisoner's Dilemma using a number of player implementations. Existing strategy encoding and neural network models are compared with action-discriminating neural network created during writing of this paper.
