Project Discussion and Comment: Artificial Culture Project Blog

Welcome to the Artificial Culture project, or to give it it's full title: The Emergence of Artificial Culture in Robot Societies.

Video by Roger Stotesbury, Jump Off The Screen

This is a four year research project with the aim of exploring the question How and Why do we have Culture? in a radical new way: by building a simple robot society, creating suitable initial conditions, then running the robot society and watching to see if simple proto-cultural behaviours, i.e. 'traditions', emerge.
This is an Open Science project, which means that we will be uploading here not only project results and conclusions but also the data collected from experiments, together with discussion as the project evolves and proceeds.

This project is funded by the EPSRC.
