My research interests are mainly in adaptive systems, both artificial and
biological. They include the following: the development of
artificial nervous systems for robots, with emphasis on visually guided robots
acting in the real world -- in particular, the development of biologically
inspired behaviour generating networks incorporating virtual diffusable neuro-modulators;
evolutionary robotics; insect-inspired navigation; artificial life; evolutionary and other stochastic search algorithms;
computational neuroscience; adaptive systems in the visual arts and in music; history
and philosophy of AI; machine learning. For more details follows the links to
publications and research.
I am co-director of The Sussex Centre for Computational Neuroscience and Robotics (CCNR) , an interdisciplinary centre set up in collaboration with The School of Life Sciences.
I am a founding member and head of the Evolutionary and Adaptive Systems group in The Department of Informatics.
