The Phoenix Project

Exploring the unknown with a swarm of evolving smart marbles

Humans have explored the world from the depths of the oceans to the edges of the universe. Yet many environments remain inaccessible, such as the waste water under the Fukushima reactor and sites for underground CO2 storage.

For these environments, the Phoenix Project develops the inspectors of the future: swarms of evolving smart sensing agents with learning and decision-making abilities.

Eventually, we want to apply the technology in chemical reactor vessels, space exploration, and even inside the human body.
