About the Hampshire College Computational Intelligence Lab


The Hampshire College Computational Intelligence Laboratory, the research group of the Hampshire College Institute for Computational Intelligence, supports research in artificial intelligence, artificial life, and a variety of areas at the intersections of computer science with cognitive science, physics, evolutionary biology, and the arts.

This site provides basic, slowly changing information about the lab. More detailed and rapidly updated information is sometimes available from the Push Discourse site, but only portions of that are public.
