This week Paul Grouchy tells us how we can use lessons learned from nature to make smarter computers, and better robots. We talk about pirates, chairs, and sticky-ish rice, learn about immortal virtual life-forms and stair climbing robots, and discuss robot-butts. Paul talks about research that takes a lot of computing power, but not, you know, a lot a lot. Well, sometimes a lot a lot, let’s just say it’s complicated, but definitely super cool. There are false starts, and Simon’s jokes fall flat. But it’s okay, because evolution is a messy process.
