Galapagotchi with Gerald de Jong [July 6, 2019]

Gerald de Jong has been in and out of creating simulations over the past eight years but he's returned to work on Galapagotchi. Tom tries very hard to create distinctions between springs and tensegrity structures but Gerald isn't having any of it. Gerald gives a definition of Galapagotchi. How have Gerald's thoughts changed about artificial life in the past eight years? What's the distinction between water and land?

Moveable Fiesta [June 28, 2019]

Tom welcomes on Professor David Ackley who introduces his interests in artificial life and how he developed Evolutionary Reinforcement Learning. Can this work map back into biology? What does it take to get this kind of cross disciplinary collaboration? Tom asks about Professor Ackley's motivation to put so much information on YouTube. How is this different to publicly accessible papers? Does it bring students to the field? Professor Ackley talks about the vision of a new computer architecture: the Moveable Feast Machine. Tom asks about Anton's work with a GPU-based Moveable Feast Machine. Is there a possibility to get slightly more complex artificial life running on the Moveable Feast Machine? Listen in to find out.
