This report results from a contract tasking University College London as follows The research will focus on two goals 1 The creation of a new biologically-inspired algorithm that exploits both evolution and processes of development to enable computers to automatically find solutions to large-scale complex problems overcoming current scalability problems in evolutionary computation. 2 The demonstration of this algorithm on a novel combination of smart materials such as memory shape alloys and rapid prototyping technologies for the design of self-adapting forms.
