Topics in Artificial Intelligence (projects): Bio-Inspired Computing
Semester B, 2000-2001
Lecturer: Dr. Moshe Sipper
The presentations will take place on Monday, June 11, 10-12,
Bldg. 32, Room #108. You'll have 7-10 minutes (depending on the number

This course is one of the mini-project courses, two of which are
required to meet the undergraduate project requirement. Students will
work on software projects in the area of bio-inspired computing
(evolutionary computation, cellular computing, artificial
self-replication, cellular automata, and more (see my web site for
