Talking Robots: Laurent Keller

Markus Waibel writes,
"The new Talking Robots podcast
episode interviews the biologist Laurent Keller, who is
very well known for his work on ants and other social insects. He has
been one of the first biologists to turn to robotics to perform artificial
selection experiments that are difficult or impossible to realize
with biological organisms. In this interview he gives a biologist's
perspective of robots and robotics, he talks about the advantages of
using robots rather than theoretical models and computer simulations
alone, and he comments on whether we should build animal-robot hybrids
and artificial animals."
