Hyenas and lion feeding on carcass in Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya

Biologists study mammalian behavior, including hyenas using computational theory. One example is studying how cooperative behavior evolves among competing predators. In this picture, hyenas and lions feed on a carcass in Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya.

Image of vehicle systems experiments conducted in the webots simulation environment.

A 3-D image of intelligent vehicle systems experiments conducted in the webots simulation environment. This scenario in particular shows two simulated vehicle controllers capable of adaptive cruise control and lane keeping. Evolutionary computation was used to introduce uncertainty at the sensory level and thereby explore how controllers were affected.
