Generating 3D models of paintings through the combination of 2D, 3D and RTI data (2017)
Conference Proceeding
Aure Calvet, X., O'Dowd, P., & Padfield, J. (2017). Generating 3D models of paintings through the combination of 2D, 3D and RTI data. In N. Lambert, G. Diprose, & J. Bowen (Eds.),

The National Gallery in London has recently been testing the potential of 3D scanning technology to record and measure the surface of paintings. To view and interact with the high-resolution scans requires expensive computational hardware. The propos...

Painting by numbers: The development of texture in digitally printed artworks (2015)
Book Chapter
Parraman, C., O'Dowd, P., & Harding, M. (2015). Painting by numbers: The development of texture in digitally printed artworks. In C. Andrei, L. Ballantyne, A. McInnes, & A. Tsekova (Eds.), IMPACT 9 International Printmaking Conference, 256-261. China Academy of Art Press

This paper considers alternative approaches to image making and printing that moves from the on-screen representation of images and painting applications, to the physical generation and methods for surface deposition or 2.5D printing. The research i... Read More about Painting by numbers: The development of texture in digitally printed artworks.

The distributed co-evolution of an on-board simulator and controller for swarm robot behaviours (2014)
Journal Article
Winfield, A. F. T., O'Dowd, P. J., O'Dowd, P., Studley, M., & Winfield, A. F. (2014). The distributed co-evolution of an on-board simulator and controller for swarm robot behaviours. Evolutionary Intelligence, 7(2), 95-106. https://doi.org/10.1007/s12065-014-0112-8

We investigate the reality gap, specifically the environmental correspondence of an on-board simulator. We describe a novel distributed co-evolutionary approach to improve the transference of controllers that co-evolve with an on-board simulator. A n...

The distributed co-evolution of an embodied simulator and controller for swarm robot behaviours (2011)
Presentation / Conference
O'Dowd, P., Winfield, A. F., & Studley, M. (2011, September). The distributed co-evolution of an embodied simulator and controller for swarm robot behaviours. Paper presented at IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS 2011), San Francisco, USA

Embodied fitness assessment of robotic controllers is slow but grounded, while assessment in a simulated environment is fast but can run foul of the ‘reality gap’. We present a distributed co-evolutionary method to adapt the environmental model of an...

Towards accelerated distributed evolution for adaptive behaviours in swarm robotics (2010)
Book Chapter
O'Dowd, P., Winfield, A. F., & Studley, M. (2010). Towards accelerated distributed evolution for adaptive behaviours in swarm robotics. In T. Belpaeme, G. Bugmann, C. Melhuish, & M. Witkowski (Eds.), Proceedings of Towards Autonomous Robotic Systems 2010, (169-175). University of Plymouth

The major problem facing swarm robotics is that of design. A recent promising approach is the application of evolutionary algorithms to solve the problem of decomposing group behaviour to that of interacting individual behaviours. This paper presents...
