Presentation / Conference
Sardo, M., & Grand, A. (2013, November). Engagement: Knitting up the ravelled sleeve?. Poster presented at NCCPE Rngage 2013 Conference, Bristol

The poster aimed to explore the big questions around partnerships in public engagement and consider how, as public engagement researchers, we can draw these threads together and tie them in a strong knot that supports university research. The post... Read More about Engagement: Knitting up the ravelled sleeve?.

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...
