Book Review: Waking, Dreaming, Being

Philosophy AI Date: 02/04/2016 :: 0 comments

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?

Multi-agent systems Robots Neural networks Philosophy Date: 19/02/2016 :: 0 comments

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.

The 'I Matter' Illusion

Multi-agent systems Philosophy Date: 24/02/2013 :: 2 comments

How many times a day do you encounter slogans like 'treat yourself with this and that product' or 'your choice of this and that' or even 'this and that is in this way for your convenience'? The idea that the world is all about you creeps everywhere these days...

The Centralised Mindset and Complexity Science

Multi-agent systems Philosophy Date: 05/01/2013 :: 0 comments

Humans tend to explain decentralised phenomena as being caused by a single entity. This way of thinking is often referred to as 'the centralised mindset'. Several authors propose that using programming environments where creation of decentralised agent-based systems is easy...

To Vote or Not To Vote: A Swarm Approach

Multi-agent systems Philosophy Date: 19/01/2012 :: 0 comments

I’ve never voted. I am not sure why, I perhaps don't care enough. People always tell me: 'Imagine everybody would decide not to vote! You have to vote because every small opinion counts towards the final results'. I've never agreed with it, although I couldn't express why...

Will is Conscious, but not Free

Philosophy Date: 04/05/2011 :: 0 comments

The effect of unconscious stimuli on motor actions and emotions is discussed. The nature of human will is examined through review of experiments on correlates of brain activity during volitional actions.

pyCreeper

The main purpose of pyCreeper is to wrap tens of lines of python code, required to produce graphs that look good for a publication, into functions. It takes away your need to understand various quirks of matplotlib and gives you back ready-to-use and well-documented code.

Novelty detection with robots using the Grow-When-Required Neural Network

The Grow-When-Required Neural Network implementation in simulated robot experiments using the ARGoS robot simulator.

Fast Data Analysis Using C++ and Python

C++ code that processes data and makes it available to Python, significantly improving the execution speed.

Designing Robot Swarms

This project looks at the challenges involved in modeling, understanding and designing of multi-robot systems.

Robustness in Foraging E-puck Swarms Through Recruitment

Swarms of five e-puck robots are used in a semi-virtual environment, facilitated by the VICON positioning system. Recruitment can make swarms more robust to noise in robot global positioning data.
