Guzs's research lies in the field of Artificial Intelligence, Evolutionary Computing, Evolutionary Robotics, Artificial Life and Adaptive Collective Systems. The vision driving his research can be expressed through two statements:
His research focus in recent years has been physically embodied artificial evolution, that is, evolution in robot populations, working on several robotic research projects with a long-term vision that robots can self-reproduce and evolve in real time and real space.
Gusz Eiben is professor of Computational Intelligence at the VU University Amsterdam and Visiting Professor on the University of York, UK. He was one of the early birds of Evolutionary Computing in Europe, publishing his first paper on the subject in 1989 and co-authoring the first comprehensive book on the subject in 2003.
