Speaking at EPFL on the History of Self-Reproducing Machines

I am excited to be travelling to EPFL in Switzerland this week to present a guest lecture on the early history of self-reproducing machines.

I was invited by Clément Hongler at EPFL to give a talk for his post-grad course on Artificial Life.

The talk will draw on sections of my book Rise of the Self-Replicators: Early Visions of Machines, AI and Robots That Can Reproduce and Evolve.

Slides for the talk can be viewed here.
