Ben Matthews

I am a third year computer science student at the University of new Mexico. I work primarily on visual and graphical projects some of which can be found on my website: http://www.unm.edu/~bmatthews1/, or at my codepen: https://codepen.io/tsuhre/. My programming background is in Java and Javascript with a focus on high level applications and UI.

Blue Sky Ideas

*Cellular Mitosis:

  • Create a model of a cell with a cell membrane and “DNA” information as a mass of different atoms, and have that cell undergo something similar to mitosis to replicate all of the features of that cell
    • Stretch goal: work on the semi-permeable membrane problem

*Genetic Creatures:

  • Create some “creatures” (small collections of connected atoms) that contain genetic information that define their behavior. Put these creatures in an environment with a goal (fitness function) and see if we can get them to exhibit interesting emergent behavior.
    • Stretch goal: Social behavior

Final Research
