Robot takes on ancient ritual of Torah writing in museum installation

It’s a complicated process that requires meticulous attention to detail – Torah writing is an activity that has traditionally been performed by a Sofer, a specially trained scribe over the centuries. Considered a highly sacred act, Torah writing has now come into contact with the mechanized 21st century thanks to “bios [torah]” an installation that just ran at the Jewish Museum in Berlin from artist group robotlab.

This Computer-Generated Swarm Is Mind-Melting

Swarms–like a flock of birds, or a school of fish–are mathematically complicated, but computer scientists are getting better at modeling, and learning from, them. Using code that simulates birds in coordinated flight, Cyrill Studer and Lazar Jeremic made the “visual instrument” you see in the video here: a knob- and button-controlled view of a swarm in motion. It’s mesmerizing.
