Joel Lehman is an assistant professor at the IT University of Copenhagen. His research goal is to write algorithms inspired by natural evolution that continually produce a wild diversity of interesting and complex things.


Kenneth O. Stanley is the director of the Evolutionary Complexity (EPlex) Research Group at UCF. Our research focuses on abstracting the essential properties of natural evolution that made it possible to discover astronomically complex structures such as the human brain. Our work is in part an approach to artificial intelligence.
