Artificial Life

The Artificial Life Lab of the Department of Zoology at Karl-Franzens-University Graz is an interdisciplinary workgroup consisting of 10-15 scientists that investigate Artificial-Life topics from various perspectives and with a huge variety of tools and approaches.

The studies performed in the group are:

  • Bio-inspired robotics
  • Swarm robotics
  • Modelling of swarm-intelligent systems
  • Complexity science
  • Studies of biological self-organization (mainly honeybees)
  • Multi-agent simulations
  • Artificial ecologies
  • Artificial evolution
  • Artificial physiology
  • Virtual embryogenesis
  • ... and many other fields that deal at the crosspoints of biology, mathematics, physics, chemistry and engineering.

This (non-exhaustive) list shows that a broad spectrum of research is performed by a mixed group of biologists, computer scientists, simulation engineers, roboticists, and mathematicians.
