Machine Wilderness workshop Jip

Start: June 27, 2018, 4 p.m.
End: June 27, 2018, 5:30 p.m.

Description

Jip van Leeuwenstein is working on a new robotic predator from June 22 onwards. At the end of his work week in the Amstelpark, Jip discusses his series of robotic creatures he develops for ecosytems that have been knocked out of balance by human activity. Participants participate in the construction process and discover in detail how Jip’s predetaor robots function. We will explore if it is possible to create creatures which are autonomous within an ecosystem andto what extent this technology is useful for balancing natural systems. Detailed technical experience is not needed to participate.
