How evolution shapes the way roboticists think


How evolution shapes the way roboticists think

Roboticists, by necessity, are keen students of biology: we hope to create
machines that are as agile, adaptive and intelligent as the organisms we see
around us. However, we tend to copy the end products of evolution (compliant
limbs, neural circuits, legged gaits) rather than evolutionary
processes themselves (selection pressures, developmental programs). In this
talk I will show how re-creating evolution in a computer can allow us to
design robots automatically, rather than trying to build them manually.
