The Algorithmic Nature Group undertakes research on basic and applied topics at the intersection of several disciplines clustered around algorithmic complexity and information theory. The group aims at connecting nature and computation through simulation and experimentation with digital systems and small computer programs.
The group is affiliated to the Paris-based Laboratoire de Recherche Scientifique (LABORES) for the Natural and Digital Sciences and is supported by various organisations and individuals from several European universities who have decided to work together, disregarding frontiers, in order to tackle challenges in complexity science using cutting-edge mathematical theories and computational tools.
The Algorithmic Nature Group is the responsible lab for two current major projects: the Online Algorithmic Complexity Calculator (OACC) and the Human Randomness Generation Project. The group has also devised the Block Decomposition Method based on algorithmic probability to reconstuct objects from the bottom-up to estimate upper bounds of Kolmogorov complexity and algorithmic randomness.
