artificial life, open-ended evolution, artificial intelligence and other crazy ideas
I am pleased to announce that my new book Rise of the Self-Replicators: Early Visions of Machines, AI and Robots That Can Reproduce and Evolve is now published!

One of my favourite papers that received relatively little attention
Redrawing the Boundary between Organism and Environment (2004). I describe a biosemiotics-inspired approach to modelling the evolution of sensing, action and behaviour in computational systems. The paper received very positive comments from the reviewers, but hasn't made much of an impact in the years that followed. I'll soon be embarking on some new experimental work based upon these ideas!
A new website, at last!
Revamping my old website has been on my to-do list for a very long time! After 15 years of service, it was certainly in need of some modernisation. I finally found some time during the COVID-19 lockdown to develop a completely new site.
