SwarmMesh: A Distributed Data Structure for Cooperative Multi-Robot Applications [article]

Nathalie Majcherczyk, Carlo Pinciroli
2019 arXiv   pre-print
We present an approach to the distributed storage of data across a swarm of mobile robots that forms a shared global memory.  ...  Our approach is motivated by the insight that in many applications data is collected at the periphery of a swarm topology, but the periphery also happens to be the most dangerous location for storing data  ...  The SOUL file sharing protocol [23] builds on virtual stigmergy and unstructured overlay networks to enable sharing of larger-size data in the form of (key, blob) pairs.  ...

Bringing free will down to Earth: People's psychological concept of free will and its role in moral judgment

Andrew E. Monroe, Kyle D. Dillon, Bertram F. Malle
2014 Consciousness and Cognition  
We test the predictions of these two models by creating agents that vary in their capacity for choice and the presence of a soul.  ...  In two studies, people's judgments of free will and blame for these agents show little to no basis in ascriptions of a soul but are powerfully predicted by ascriptions of choice capacity.  ...  Supplementary material Supplementary data associated with this article can be found, in the online version, at j.concog.2014.04.011.  ...

Friendship Between Human Beings and AI Robots? [chapter]

Margaret S. Archer
2021 Robotics, AI, and Humanity  
Hence, Archer asks 'Can Human Beings and AI Robots be Friends?' The need to foreground social change for structure culture and agency is being stressed.  ...  With the growing capacities of AI robots the tables are turned and implicitly pose the question, 'so are they not persons too?' Robophobia dominates Robophilia, in popular imagination and academia.  ...  The US Department of Defense is explicit that such swarms 'are not pre-programmed synchronized individuals, they are a collective organism, sharing one distributed brain for decision-making and adapting  ...
