By Ben Goertzel These last couple months have been fascinating (and exhausting) for me. I’ve largely taken a break from my AI research work and I’ve spent most of my time organizing a new AI-meets-blockchain project — SingularityNET — and...

Evolutionary artificial life systems have demonstrated many exciting behaviors. However, there is a general consensus that these systems are missing some element of the consistent evolutionary innovation that we see in nature.
Hod Lipson demonstrates a few of his cool little robots, which have the ability to learn, understand themselves and even self-replicate.
Call for Articles for Freerange Vol. 8 — animals, humans, robots and the borders and boundaries between them
Freerange Vol.8 is looking for articles, ideas, images, stories, illustrations, inventions, or anything else that might contribute to the theme: animals, humans, robots and the borders and boundaries between them.
Well known cyberpunk author John Shirley recently gave a talk at TEDx Brussels in which he discusses two ideas of The Singularity, one true and one false, as well as a dark vision of the near future.
I have recently read the book “Ignorance: how it drives science” by Stuart Firestein, a Neuroscientist at NYU. This is of particular interest to me, as I hosted a workshop last summer (at Artificial Life 13) called “Hard-to-Define Events” (HTDE).
A novel approach to modeling biological evolution utilizing computational tools from fluid mechanics known as Lagrangian Coherent Structures (LCS) previously used in biology to study the biomechanics of locomotion in fluids and the relationship between predation and ocean currents.
