Focus on cutting-edge research next to AI. “What does artificial life (ALIFE) reveal about us” from the audio education media VOOX starts distribution today
In this series, we will focus on the AI evolution system “ALIFE (artificial life)”. Mizuki Oka, an associate professor at the University of Tsukuba, who is a leading expert in artificial life research, will introduce the latest research results while unraveling the evolutionary process of living things. It is a series that gives us hints for our own evolution and growth.
Creating an Evolutionary Mechanism? What is “Artificial Life (ALIFE)”? Will AI that replaces human intelligence become a reality? The forefront of computer science is “AI”, and many people are paying attention to its potential. The theme of this series is “ALIFE (artificial life)”, an evolutionary system of “AI”. This is research that attempts to artificially create mechanisms for the evolution of humans and life by making machines more human-like.
Research on artificial life provides hints for our evolution and growth In this series, Dr. Mizuki Oka, an associate professor at the University of Tsukuba and a leading expert in artificial life research, introduces a variety of research. For example, in an experiment in which a robot solves a complex maze, the best result was not a robot that pursues a goal in a straight line, but a robot that tries many new things. From these results, Mr. Oka suggests that “creativity is not a talent, but a habit.” In this way, the
evolutionary process of living organisms has been unraveled from the research of artificial intelligence. In addition, the research results are all hints for our current evolution and growth.
