Loki is a simple simulation of a one-dimensional world populated with simple coloured agents that replicate when they have enough energy. Their colour and ability to acquire energy is inherited from their parent. Over time the evolution of different coloured germlines produces continually interesting and varying patterns.
Proof of concept that robots can be used as intermediaries between bees and zebra fish. Simple zebra fish behaviour (e.g. clockwise swimming) is detected and mimicked by a zebra fish robot and the robot’s behaviour communicated to a bee robot changes its behaviour to affects the behaviour of its bee friends. And vice-versa. Maybe the beginning of interspecies communication mediated via embodied AI?
An architecture firm called Studio RAP has built what it claims is the“first robotically fabricated building in the Netherlands,” using automated milling techniques to craft a unique, swooping structure.
