Microscopic Active Particles with Embodied Intelligence

Project description

The march of the autonomous microbots

From individual receptors and organelles to cells and multi-cellular organisms, nature's living biological matter can sense the environment and respond to it intelligently to get its work accomplished. In many of these systems, the processing of environmental information results in mechanical motion. Scientists have made significant progress toward systems that mimic nature's unique capabilities, yet truly autonomous control has been elusive. The EU-funded MAPEI project will leverage advances in machine learning and embodied intelligence (intelligent behaviour coupling an agent, its environment, perception and motion) to demonstrate intelligent autonomous microbots consisting of microscopic active particles.
