A terrific conference just took place in Denton, Texas (June 1-3, 2023): Conference on Engineering in Living Systems, or CELS. Its aim was to inspire cross-disciplinary research between biology and engineering by bringing together biologist, engineers, and some fellow travelers like me (a mathematician). I had the privilege of speaking on intelligence metrics. Here are my slides. I hope soon to develop this talk into a proper peer-reviewed paper.
I want to thank Steve Laufmann and Eric Anderson especially for helping to make this conference happen.
