Living Machines

Living Machines
Over the last fifteen years we have built behavior-based artificial creatures situated in the world like insects and recently we have built robots with which we can have human-like social interaction. But we never quite forget that these systems are machines and not alive. Perhaps we are missing something fundamental and currently unimagined in each of our various models of behavior, perception, cognition, evolution, natural selection, morphogenesis, etc. If this turns out to be true, then we will need to have some new ways of thinking about the issues of living systems if we are to make progress. This project is an attempt to find those missing elements.
