Canadian boffin gives Doctor Who something to smile about

CBC News report that the terraforming nanobots that swarmed over tonight’s episode of Doctor Who are named after a computer science professor from a Newfoundland university.

Frank Cottrel-Boyce’s Smile featured city-building robots called Vardies, named after Andrew Vardy who teaches computer science and electrical engineering at Memorial University. His research focuses on swarm robots.
