CANCELLED CS4 Related Talk: Jon Timmis

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED AND WILL BE RESCHEDULED FOR LATER IN THE YEAR

The next Quantitative Biology Seminar Series event will take place in Building 44 Room

Prof Jon Timmis, University of York

1041 at 15 May 2013 at 13:00 when Prof Jon Timmis, University of York, will give the talk “From Immune Systems to Robots”

Abstract:
“There are many areas of bio-inspired computing where inspiration is taken from a biological system to construct an engineered solution. This talk will focus on the modelling of the immune system using agent-based simulations and the trustworthiness, or otherwise, of such simulations and the use of the immune system as inspiration in a variety of settings from robot mounted chemical identification to self-healing swarm robotic systems. We will explore how the modelling and engineering work can complement each other, and pass comment on the thrills and pitfalls of interdisciplinary working.”
