ArchaeaBot: A Post Singularity and Post Climate Change Life-form by Alex May and Anna Dumitriu has been selected for publication in the proceedings and for a virtual oral presentation at the ALIFE 2021 conference.
The ALIFE conferences are the major meetings of the artificial life research community since 1987. These scientific gatherings are supported by the International Society for Artificial Life (ISAL).
The conference theme for 2021 will be Robots: The century past and the century ahead.
The world-wide used word “robot” comes from Czech. It was first used to depict a fictional humanoid in Czech writer Karel Čapek’s play R.U.R. Although the play is one hundred years old it opens many contemporary questions and many of them are related to artificial life research. It will be great to celebrate this centenary with artificial life community in the Czech Republic.
