Darpa Robotics Challenge winners, KAIST, were the stars of last week’s Humanoids 2015 conference, in Seoul, Korea. It was the first major outing for humanoid robots since the DRC earlier this year and even featured a mini-Darpa challenge.

There are two very good reasons to watch Humans, the new robot-themed drama series that premiered in the UK on Sunday. Firstly, it’s a well-made high-energy thriller with a pacy storyline, focusing on a domestic future not unlike the present –  only with robots. Secondly, it tackles the questions we should be asking about that future.

In this video lecture, Francesco Nori – one of the key contributors to the iCub – discusses the latest developments for whole-body motion control of humanoid systems.
