An Initiative by Ars Electronica Futurelab
SPAXELS RESEARCH INITIATIVE (SRI)
The Ars Electronica Futurelab’s Spaxels Research Initiative develops tools that implement the theoretical understanding of swarms—or multicellular robotic organisms (MCROs)—in actual practice, and subjects this “reified future” to a variety of different considerations. In this context, Spaxels are only a single possibility of integrating the general public into this discourse; after all, this is a matter of an ongoing process of development in this field, and of subjecting it to consideration and assessment along ethical criteria. However, the development of precisely these criteria in the first place demands integrating our society into a broad discourse. The Spaxels Research Initiative’s mission is to make the necessary experience and information available to the general public now and to initiate this discourse.
