Iida_Fumiya_0_0Guest talk in the ShanghAI Lectures, 2011-11-17

Artificial ontogenetic development has been nicely demonstrated by many computer simulation studies in the past. There are, however, still a number of technical challenges in bringing it to the real world. In this presentation, I will introduce some potential solutions to this challenging problem, solutions that stem from soft robotics research. More specifically, we demonstrate how autonomous construction, autonomous body extension, and autonomous robot climbing locomotion can be achieved by exploiting unconventional soft material such as Hot Melt Adhesives.

Olivier MichelGuest talk in the ShanghAI Lectures, 2011-11-10

This presentation introduces Cyberbotics Ltd. with a little bit of history (where it came from), then it presents the Webots software that allows researchers and students to develop fast prototypes and simulations of mobile robots. Webots is being used in over than 875 universities and research centers world wide for both research and education. The end of the presentation includes a live demo of the new upcoming features in Webots: display of collision detection, interactive application of forces and torques to objects while the simulation is running.

Recent headlines have been awash with stories of a computer program ‘disguised’ as a 13 year old Ukrainian boy Eugene Goostman has passed the Turing Test. We will likely hear of more programs that have passed the test in the near future – how close these claims are to the real ‘spirit’ of Turing's intentions is certainly very debatable.

Pepper2

 

The latest creation from Aldebaran Robotics – Pepper – is designed to live with humans. It doesn’t clean or cook but it talks, is mobile, can read emotions, and reacts autonomously to “make people happy.”

Minoru Asada

Guest talk in the ShanghAI Lectures, 2011-10-20

In this guest lecture, Minoru Asada from Osaka University, Japan, talks about combining developmental psychology, neuroscience, and robotics into “Cognitive Developmental Robotics”, a new paradigm that provides an understanding of ourselves and at the same time serves as a design theory of humanoid symbiosis with us.
