The Mobile Robots Group is a loose collection of staff and students who share a broad approach to AI: intelligence will, in our opinion, be best understood through the construction of agents which live autonomously in the real world, using non-symbolic-logical tools: `behaviour-based' architectures, neural networks, genetic algorithms, ethology, control theory.
The net was conceived by Janet Halperin, of the University of Toronto's Ethology department. Janet was working with Siamese Fighting Fish and looking for a way to model the various kinds of conditioning behaviour observed in experiments with this species. They're useful in this respect, because they do reliably exhibit a "fighting display", which can be measured fairly easily
The Lothian Evolutionary Algorithms Research Network (LEARN) is a group of researchers based in the Edinburgh area who share an interest in theoretical issues and practical applications of evolutionary algorithms (genetic algorithms, genetic programming, classifier systems etc.).
This site provides information on research and current work being carried out worldwide on Learning Classifier Systems. Much of what it available on this site derives from information gleaned for my own research work, and from contributions by others. In particular, I would like to acknowledge contributions and kind words from Stewart Wilson and suggestions from Tim Kovacs.
I'm a computer scientist with the US Navy's AI Research Center, focusing on machine learning (ML) and case-based reasoning (CBR). I've helped procure grants for 6.1 (basic) and 6.2 (more applied) contracts for developing our AI expertise and transitioning systems for use in Navy tasks, and am the P.I. for our ONR 6.2 grant on case-based reasoning. I serve the ML and CBR communities on journal boards (MLj, JAIR, Applied Intelligence), program committees, and as a reviewer.

SANS was established in 1987 at the Department of Numerical Analysis and Computing Science (NADA), the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH). The scope of its research ranges from the design and evaluation of artificial neural network algorithms to realistic modelling of biological neuronal networks.
Bien que le principe d?un animal artificiel fut envisagÃ© par L. Booker, le terme d?animat fut mentionnÃ© pour la premiÃ¨re fois par S. Wilson lors de la premiÃ¨re confÃ©rence internationale sur les algorithmes gÃ©nÃ©tiques en 1985. Il y prÃ©senta son animat, animal artificiel, capable de dÃ©couvrir de la nourriture au milieu d?arbres dans un monde discret de 18*58 cases.

I am presently working as a computational biologist in the Department of Artificial Intelligence (DAI) at the University of Edinburgh. My research involves investigation of perceptual mechanisms via the construction and testing of bionic ("life"-"like") models -- e.g., this DAI 6 DOF bionic sensorhead mounted aboard a mobile robot. A short list of publications on my work modelling active acoustic localisation mechanisms is available on-line.
I have a degree in Physics from the EPFL (Lausanne, Switzerland) and am currently studying for a PhD at the Department of Artificial Intelligence of the University of Edinburgh. My supervisors are Dr John Hallam and Prof David Willshaw (Cog. Sci.). I am member of the Mobile Robots and Evolutionary Computation groups of the department
PhD (4th year of 3), looking at evolving Neural Network controllers for walking robots. This project uses a parallel Genetic Algorithm to evolve Neural Networks which will act as controllers for a legged robot. The robot is currently a mechanical simulation, and so everything is done on the computer. _
I'm currently running an EPSRC-funded research project entitled ``An Investigation of Evoltuionary Scheduling''. This aims to study why and how well GA-based methods of scheduling work, and to extend current techniques in various directions to make them more useful for the real world. There are already a fair number of practical examples, but most of the proper experimental studies have been confined to academic benchmark sets.
Interests: Evolutionary Computation - genetic algorithms, and evolution and use of artificial immune systems.
My field of research is using problems in scheduling to explore representational issues in genetic algorithms and other `neighbourhood-search' optimisation techniques

Chris Atkeson's research focuses on machine learning, and uses robotics as a domain in which to explore the behavior of learning algorithms.
My main research interest is developing algorithms for machine learning control, with applications to robots, factories, and other complex systems. To further this goal I run the Auton project.

I am teaching "Theories and Systems of Artificial Intelligence" at II University of Naples. My research interests are in the field of Cognitve Science and Educational Psychology.
I am studying the swimming of lampreys. A lamprey is a kind of fish which (similarly to eels) project itself in water by undulation of its body, without use of fins. The undulation is a traveling wave propagating from head to tail. Because their nervous system is relatively simple and robust, lampreys have been extensively studied by neurobiologists

This is an index of source code for implementations of genetic algorithms and other EC methods. Many of these packages are archived here at GA Archive, others are maintained as links. This list is now maintained alphabetically, and by language.
The Reproductive Plan Language RPL2 is an extensible, interpreted language for writing and using evolutionary computing programs. It supports arbitrary genetic representations, all structured population models described in the literature together with further hybrids, and runs on parallel or serial hardware while hiding parallelism from the user. It has been applied to a wide variety of real industrial applications. An extensive visualisation interface is also available.

These papers quickly sketch out positions in specific areas and might eventually be re-worked into more extended, carefully argued articles.
Our work on GA-NN combinations started with Artificial Life research on the evolution of NNs mapping sensors to actions to define the behavior of animats [Paredis 91a]. The goal is to obtain NNs which allow the animats to survive in a (simulated) world.

ORGANISMS VERSUS FETISHES Vedran Vucic and Henrik Hautop Lund
Generative Music Generative systems are hot news in music technology and on the Internet. We don't say it is easy creating the best in generative music (and being at the front is never easy), but SSEYO Koan Pro is an immense and incredible product.
We describe a series of experiments in generating traditional musical harmony using Genetic Algorithms. We argue that the encoding of explicit domain knowledge in these algorithms is helpful in producing a reasonable result, and discuss some problems which are specific to the musical domain.
