AI_evolution_data

Want to create human-equivalent AI? Well, broadly speaking, there are three approaches open to you: design it, reverse-engineer it or evolve it. The third of these - artificial evolution - is attractive because it sidesteps the troublesome problem of having to understand how human intelligence works.

Iida_Fumiya_0_0Guest talk in the ShanghAI Lectures, 2011-11-17

Artificial ontogenetic development has been nicely demonstrated by many computer simulation studies in the past. There are, however, still a number of technical challenges in bringing it to the real world. In this presentation, I will introduce some potential solutions to this challenging problem, solutions that stem from soft robotics research. More specifically, we demonstrate how autonomous construction, autonomous body extension, and autonomous robot climbing locomotion can be achieved by exploiting unconventional soft material such as Hot Melt Adhesives.
