Richard A. Watson
is a computer science and complex systems professor at Brandeis
University. His laboratory's work on AI, Artificial Life, Neural
Networks, Evolution, Dynamical Systems, Games, Robotics, Machine
Learning, and Educational Technology has been reported on by
the New York Times, Time, Science, NPR, Slashdot.org and many
other media sources worldwide.
MARK BEDAU is
Professor of Philosophy and Humanities at Reed College. He is
President of the International Society for Artificial life, as
well as Editor-in-Chief of the journal. Mark has also been involved
in Alife 7 and Alife 8 conferences. His paper "Open problems
in artificial life" Artificial Life 6 (2000): 363-376 has
had a dramatic ongoing effect on the field.
is Professor of Artificial Intelligence at the University of
Sussex, co-director of the Centre for Computational Neuroscience
and Robotics (CCNR) and head of the Evolutionary and Adaptive
Systems Group in the department of Informatics. He has conducted
and lead research in the application and development of bio-inspired
adaptive technologies for the past 18 years.
is professor of physics at the university of Tokyo, School
for Arts and Sciences. He heads
the laboratory of artificial
life and complex systems. He has been developing various theoretical
models of biological phenomena using artificial chemistries and
neural networks, focusing in particular on the coupled recognizers
and the co-evolutionary systems.
WATSON is a research fellow in population genetics in
the Dept. of
Organismic & Evolutionary Biology at Harvard University.
His interdisciplinary work has created publications in evolutionary
computation, evolutionary robotics, population genetics, and
artificial life. His current work is transforming results between
genetic algorithm theory and theoretical population genetics.
