Hi, I'm Andy Turner and this is my website. I created this site so as to provide a window into what it is I actually do. Within these pages I will discuss my research, interests and hobbies.

Below is an image showing a collection of ape skeletons. Images like this not only help convey how humans have evolved from other apes, but also raise questions about what separates us from these lesser apes. One major difference between humans and other apes is clearly intelligence. The intelligence of apes was brought about through evolution, which employed billions of networked neurons within the brain in order to achieve this intelligence. My research takes inspiration from evolution and neural networks and applies the underlying principles to artificial intelligence. Quite exciting really.
