Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online A group of researchers from Cornell University's Creative Machines Lab say they have developed an algorithm that can be used to witness virtual creatures evolving. The team wrote in their paper titled "Unshackling Evolution: Evolving Soft Robots With Multiple Materials and a Powerful Generative Encoding" in the journal Proceedings of the Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference about their algorithm. They said the...

Evolution is providing the inspiration for University of Adelaide computer science research to find the best placement of turbines to increase wind farm productivity. Senior Lecturer Dr Frank Neumann, from the School of Computer Science, is using a "selection of the fittest" step-by-step approach called "evolutionary algorithms" to optimise wind turbine placement. This takes into account wake effects, the minimum amount of land needed, wind factors and the complex aerodynamics of wind...


Word of the Day
Cthulhu
  • A gigantic fictional humanoid alien god being described with a head resembling an octopus and dragon wings and claws, around whom an insane cult developed.
  • Pertaining to the mythos of Cthulhu and additional otherworldly beings created by H. P. Lovecraft or inspired by his writings and imitators.
This word was invented in 1926 by H.P. Lovecraft for his short story, 'The Call of Cthulhu.' 'Cthulhu' may be based on the word 'chthonic,' which in Greek mythology refers to the underworld.
