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.
- 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.
