Scientists Discover How Intricate Spider Webs Are Made By Brains That Are a Fraction of the Size of a Human’s

Johns Hopkins University researchers discovered precisely how spiders build webs by using night vision and artificial intelligence to track and record every movement of all eight legs as spiders worked in the dark. Their creation of a web-building playbook or algorithm brings new understanding of how creatures with brains a fraction of the size of […]
