n this episode of ID the Future, CSC’s Casey Luskin is joined again by Brendan Dixon, a programmer with the Biologic Institute who recently coauthored a paper on his co-developed program, Stylus. Dixon continues the two-part interview by sharing how Stylus was developed, what the authors hope is accomplished by using the program, and where others can take a look at the code itself to understand and see what the authors have done. Listen as Dixon further explains how Stylus can help us better understand the strengths and limits of evolution.
