Building robots to understand insect behaviour

Author: Evripidis

Evripidis (or Evri) is a post-doctoral Research Associate at the University of Edinburgh, School of Informatics, and the University of Groningen, Faculty of Science and Engineering. He is interested in bio-accurate artificial intelligence and information theory, and he currently studies the effectiveness of different forms of working memory constrained by insect neuroscience and nanotechnology hardware, aiming to build an anatomically-accurate polarised light compass circuit.

Barbara, Evri, and Anna attended the central complex (CX) conference at the Janelia Research Campus last week. Barbara was invited to talk about the group’s computational models that contributed to explaining the role and function of the CX. Anna presented her newest model and data that work towards explaining how honeybees decode their conspecifics’ wiggle […]

The InsectNeuroNano project officially started! The project is a collaboration with Lund University, the University of Copenhagen, and the University of Groningen. The ambition is to transform the anatomy and function of the insect central complex (CX) into a nanophotonic chip for navigation–from skylight input to neuromorphic nanowires and robotics. Evripidis joins as a part-time […]
