ALIFE 2014 Workshop: Exploiting synergies between biology and artificial li=
fe technologies: tools, possibilities, and examples
New York, NY, USA - July 30th 2014
Artificial life research is typically performed isolated in the context of =
one of the three main strands of artificial life: soft, hard, or wet. While=
this division is both practically and historically rooted, we feel it will=
be fruitful for the artificial life community to consider potential overla=
ps and synergies between these strands and, further, to also consider overl=
aps and synergies with biological life. We hope that considering these over=
laps and synergies may be a source for new science and applications of arti=
ficial life research.
The goal of this workshop is to look at how these artificial and biological=
life forms can complement each other and potentially form synergistic rela=
tionships. At this early stage we are interested in looking at which tools=
can form the practical basis for exploring synergies and examples of speci=
fic interactions among at least two of the four life forms. Given that this=
is a workshop, we are also highly interested in discussing possibilities t=
hat are purely speculative. The organizers are particularly interested in d=
iscussing overlaps between robotics, artificial life chemistry, and microbi=
als systems, but other topics falling under the workshop theme are also wel=
