The Larsen team from the Inria centre in Nancy is developing - in partnership with the Institute of Movement Sciences (CNRS & Aix-Marseille University) - miniature and semi-autonomous robots capable of exploring the inaccessible areas of monuments and leaving a minimum of traces behind.
Jean-Baptiste Mouret, Research Director at Inria Nancy-Grand Est, has won the Award for Outstanding Paper of the Decade from the ISAL society for The evolutionary origins of modularity, a paper published in March 2013, which he co-wrote with Jeff Clune, an associate professor at the University of Wyoming, and Hod Lipson, a professor at Columbia University, New York.
ISAL, the International Society for Artificial Life, aims to promote research and education on artificial life, which is a scientific endeavour to better understand life by attempting to replicate its mechanisms in a computer, a robot or even chemical substrates. Every year, this award is given to a paper written over the precious decade that had a significant impact in the field of artificial life.
