  abstract =     "A major concern when building an intelligent robot is:
                 How can it develop increasingly intelligent behaviours?
                 This problem is widely recognised, and present research
                 with the ARBIB autonomous robot also addresses this
                 issue. In this paper, we describe how ARBIB can scale
                 in complexity in two directions. First, by allowing its
                 neural simulator, called HiNoon, to take advantage of
                 distributed computer hardware, ARBIB's nervous system
                 can attain a high degree of complexity aimed at
                 increasing its sensory-motor capabilities. Second,
                 through evolution based on ideas of genetic
                 programming, HiNoon is free to develop nervous system
                 architectures whose complexity is no longer governed by
                 initial human design and subsequent intervention.
                 Hence, evolved nervous systems are supported by a
                 simulator architecture that expands to take advantage
                 of additional compute hardware when needed.",
