Interesting Engineering and The Daily Mail were among outlets reporting on UB engineering research led by Souma Chowdhury that will use gamers' brain waves to teach hives of defense robots how to swarm together to complete missions.

"The idea is to eventually scale up to 250 aerial and ground robots, working in highly complex situations. For example, there may be a sudden loss of visibility due to smoke during an emergency. The robots need to be able to effectively communicate and adapt to challenges like that," said Souma Chowdhury, assistant professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering.
