Will Artificial Intelligence Elevate Pop Music or Pervert It? (The Answer is Yes)

Will Artificial Intelligence Elevate Pop Music or Pervert It? (The Answer is Yes) | Eduardo R. Miranda - Impact & Press | Scoop.it

Diğer tüm canlılar ölümü ancak deneyimsel olarak kavrayabilirler ve buna tanık olsalar bile alt nesillere aktaramazlar. Bu yüzden insanı merkeze alan, yani insan odaklı her şey, gerçek bir hikâyeye dayandığında çok daha vurucu, unutulmaz ve anlamlı olur. Volvo ve …

Harnessing Slime Mould Communication for Musical Computing - Interalia Magazine

Harnessing Slime Mould Communication for Musical Computing - Interalia Magazine | Eduardo R. Miranda - Impact & Press | Scoop.it

I am interested in gaining a better understanding of the electronic properties of organisms in order to engineer novel bioelectronic systems and computing architectures based on biology. At ICCMR we have been focusing on harnessing communication with the unicellular slime mould Physarum polycephalum, henceforth referred to as P.polycephalum, to develop bio-memristors and build new computer music systems.
