New research suggests that teams of robots that self-specialize to perform specific tasks using a novel evolutionary method might have an advantage when completing missions. The study involved robotic simulations modeled loosely after the activity of leaf cutter ants that cut leaves off trees to use …

A new research project seeks to improve robot vision by applying findings from research on insect and human sight. As a part of their work, the researchers built a virtual reality simulation, in which an artificial intelligence system pursued an object. The findings were recently published …
