'[OT] Genetic Algorithm Bugs (was: POR)'
Gregg Lobdell 234-0884
Coming back around to a microcontroller related topic. Not exactly
Genetic Algorithms but Emergent Behavior. See:
This is research from 1989. A small robot/oversized bug, that isn't
programmed to walk, but has a network of sensors and actuators and a
"goal" of forward movement. The bug learns to walk. It starts out
flailing it's legs around but quickly develops either a 3 and 3 gait
or a 2-2-2 ripple gait.
I actually saw the talk on this research at AAAI-90, Boston, and it's
the only time I've seen a conference presenter get a standing ovation
after the demonstration.

Brooks' stuff is really neat. Insect-like robots that deal with
bombs and land mines: http://www.isr.com
Also, to anyone interested, I have a bunch of links to "new AI"
topics, such as neural net theory and GAs, plus tiny, buglike
and flying robots at:
Of special note, Battelle Pacific Northwest Labs has Neural Network,
Fuzzy Logic, and Genetic Algorithm "Gateways to the World". I think
all of these (NN, GA, FL) can to some extent be embedded into a
PIC - for fun and profit.
