Are Bee Robots Smarter Than Their Real Life Insect Counterparts?
Bees are exceptionally rational and work cooperatively to get tasks done. Could Bee inspired robots do the same?
Two projects have researchers busily studying the inner workings of bees’ brains to advance both artificial intelligence (AI) systems and robotics sophistication.
In the first project, called Green Brain, researchers at the Universities of Sussex and Sheffield are mapping out the inner workings of a bee’s brain to advance AI computer modelling. Zeroing in on the parts of bee’s brains responsible for vision and smell, the project is hoping to advance AI systems that respond to sensory signals and act autonomously.
