That is “artificial life”. Robots that look exactly like humans have appeared, and there are existences such as generative AI that move in ways that are beyond the scope of human understanding, but in the end, can they be called life? However, there are endless questions about what makes them different from humans. Artificial life does not only target life as we know it, but all life as it could be.” , trying to capture “life phenomena.” We will therefore ask Takashi Ikegami, a professor at the University of Tokyo Graduate School, who is a world leader in artificial life research, to delve deeper into artificial life.
In the main story, we will discuss “What is artificial life?” “The combination of atoms and molecules, where does life begin?” “The relationship between life and information” “The order in which DNA is arranged/Determined only by information” “Aibo and Roomba , which is closer to life?” “Activin, the key to artificial life” “What is the game of life invented by mathematician John Conway?”
“Physicality and emotion” “Does ChatGPT create life?” “ChatGPT on Android It provides easy-to-understand explanations of artificial life with plenty of concrete examples, such as “what will happen if it is incorporated?”, “the relationship between the system and the environment,” “collectiveness as seen from the behavior of bees,” and “autonomy is maintained by being in a group.”
From artificial life to ChatGPT, you can touch on themes that you don’t normally think about, such as “My perspective on life has expanded” and “I’m looking forward to seeing how ChatGPT will be used in society in the future.” Please listen to it during your commute, work or housework.
