ShanghAI Lectures: Toshiyuki Nakagaki “How does an amoeba tackle a maze?”
Guest talk in the ShanghAI Lectures, 2011-10-27
In this guest lecture, Toshiyuki Nakagaki from Future University Hakodate, Japan, talks about his experiments with true slime mold and its abilities to find the shortest path to a food source.
The ShanghAI Lectures are a videoconference-based lecture series on Embodied Intelligence, run and organized by Rolf Pfeifer (from 2009 till 2012), Fabio Bonsignorio (since 2013), and me with partners around the world.
The ShanghAI Lectures have brought us a treasure trove of guest lectures by experts in robotics. You can find the whole series from 2012 here. Now, we’re bringing you the guest lectures you haven’t yet seen from previous years, starting with the first lectures from 2009 and releasing a new guest lecture every Thursday until all the series are complete. Enjoy!
