Talking Science Lecture 14 June

June 14, 2019

Pickavance Theatre, Harwell Campus

Lectures at 1330 and 1900

Swarm engineering across scales: from flocking robots to nanomedicine by Dr Sabine Hauert, University of Bristol.
Swarm engineering allows us to make robots that work in large numbers and tiny sizes. Swarm strategies are either inspired from nature (ant colonies, fish shoals, and bird flocks) or are
automatically discovered using machine learning and crowd sourcing.
Demonstrated applications include the deployment of swarms of flying robots to create outdoor communication networks, the use of 1000 coin-sized robots to form structures and explore their environment, and the design of nanoparticles for cancer treatment.
