Biomorphic Networks V1.0 will introduce students to circulation and transport networks, at the city scale with stigmergy systems. Through the Physarum Polycephalum algorithm, students will dive into the the world of agent-based modeling. The webinar will tackle the theory behind stigmergy, introduce voxel logics as well as learn the different components that make up the Physarium Polycephalum algorithm. These algorithms will form self-organizations which produce complex, intelligent structures, without the need for any planning or detailed control. These swarm systems take a life of their own by learning from and interacting with neighbors based on behavioral rule sets. Additional to the logic behind the algorithm, students will be provided with a crash course on how to employ these systems for design, by uncovering and discussing the different variables and their impact. Students will use a new Grasshopper plugin specifically developed for this webinar to define, manipulate and deploy these unique agent based systems generating new and optimized circulation systems. The end result will be a smart city transportation network based purely on organically optimized agent flocks.
