Evolutionary Robotics

Evolutionary robotics is a form of robotic development in which umpteen successive generations of robot designs are built, tested, modified, retested, and modified again. It can be applied to hardware, or to software equally.

In each case, the previous alliterations are scrapped to make way for newer ones that are developed to replace them.

Galatea and Modern Robotics: The Allusion
At first glance, it would not seem that an ancient Grecian myth would have anything to do with modern robotics. Yet, whilst still not commonplace, the allusion to Galatea is slowly gaining popularity as a phrase used to reference modern robots and android/gynoids. Certainly as we move ever-closer to bridging the uncanny valley, this allusion makes ever more sense.

VR Interfaces: Robulab
Robulab by name, sounds like it might be a form of robotic dog. Well, it is not. As the image above shows, its nothing so wildly interesting as that. Yet, what it is, represents something of a paradigm shift that is slowly taking place in the quest for more mainstream robotics.

Podcast: P.W. Singer: Military robots and the future of war
This podcast comes from TED 2009. It talks about current technologies in robotics, VR, and battlespace, being used now, in Iraq and other conflicts; about the reduction in cost, and the potential dangerous directions these trends are heading in.

Dressed up as real stories from the fighting fronts of recent wars, and varying between a novelistic format, and a textbook one, this book is definitely an easy read, despite the sheer amount of information it presents.
