Evolving Artificial Intelligence Lab is evolving robots at University of Wyoming
LARAMIE, Wyo. — A little more than a century ago, Wyoming was the frontier—an untamed horizon dotted with rough-and-tumble characters struggling against the harsh and unforgiving wilderness.
Cell phones, Wi-Fi, mocha cappuccinos and other symbols of modern living are now widely available, but Wyoming remains an outpost in a new frontier: artificial intelligence.
Jeff Clune, director of the University of Wyoming’s Evolving Artificial Intelligence Lab, is paving the way toward a tomorrow in which robots will not only be able to think for themselves but also reason, adapt and evolve—much in the same way humans’ brains improved over millennia.
