In this paper we discuss the limitations of current evolutionary robotics models and we propose a new framework that might solve some of these problems and lead to an open-ended evolutionary process in hardware. More specifically, the paper describes a novel approach, where the usual concepts of population, generations and fitness are made implicit in the(More)
We describe the results of a set of evolutionary experiments in which a simulated robotic arm provided with a two-fingered hand has to reach and grasp objects with different shapes and orientations on the basis of simple tactile information. Obtained results are rather encouraging and demonstrate that the problem of grasping objects with characteristics(More)
PURPOSE The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) autocrine pathway plays an important role in cancer cell growth. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a key regulator of tumor-induced endothelial cell proliferation and vascular permeability. Enhanced cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) expression has been linked to cancer cell proliferation, EGFR(More)
