Just a few months after kick-off, the swarm of researchers involved in this FP7-funded project is certainly self-organizing into a unified and powerful research organ. Its goal is to develop a theoretical framework for the distributed adaptive control of relatively simple agents, based on gene regulatory networks. Reaching this degree of integration relatively early in the project has been due to ...
