STFC Talking Science Online - Swarm engineering across scales: from flocking robots to nanomedicine by Laura Gemmell
In this talk Laura Gemmell and Merihan Alhafnawi from the University of Bristol will discuss swarm engineering and how it allows us to make robots that work in large numbers of over 1000, and tiny sizes of less than 1cm. Swarm strategies are either inspired from nature like ant colonies, fish shoals, and bird flocks, or are automatically discovered using machine learning and crowdsourcing. Demonstrated applications on this scale are used for real life issues, including the deployment of swarms of flying robots to create outdoor communication networks, the use of 1000 coin-sized robots to form structures and explore their environment, and the design of nanoparticles for cancer treatment.
