Adaptive Heuristics and Architecture
AHA!: Adaptive Heuristics and Architecture
- Can we compute wellbeing in animals?
Animal wellbeing is not only something people care about, it is central to how animals themselves think about their future. And we can utilize this mechanism to improve animal welfare, as well as to understand animal behaviour better.

The aim of the project is to model life and behaviour in digital organisms, mostly fish. By modelling physiology, cognition, genes, stimuli, environment and evolution, this research will provide knowledge about natural behaviour.
Innovation: The researchers develop mathematical models of natural behaviour applicable to aquaculture and fisheries.
