The Creative Machines Lab comprises researchers from the various disciplines of engineering, computer science, physics, math and biology. We look at self-organization and evolutionary phenomena, and their application to both engineering design automation and understanding the emergence of complexity in natural systems. We develop abstract models and applications in various domains as well as build working systems to test new ideas. There are still many open questions, but if these processes can be understood and harnessed, this will be the future of engineering.
