Organisation profile

The vision of REAL is to do research on the border between fiction and fact, to create new, feasible scenarios for the society of tomorrow. The lab has an interdisciplinary experimental practice. The lab will conceptually explore what-if scenarios with artistic projects as well as conduct fundamental science and engineering to work towards realization of these scenarios. Academically, the group is rooted in the arts, robotics, artificial life and evolutionary computation, but generally the research agenda is driven by opportunities arising both within the science and art & design communities.



-    Through art to explore new potentialities emerging from the development of science and technology

-    Develop commercially viable products and solutions

-    Develop human-in-the-loop design methodologies based on artificial evolution and artificial intelligence

-    Develop technology that enables new applications of robotics typically with a focus on empowerment and accessibility
