Cognitive Robotics: Using Neuroscience to Make Robots Smarter

Cognitive Robotics: Using Neuroscience to Make Robots SmarterA Public Lecture by Dr. Matthew Tata The idea of helpful machines that exhibit intelligent behaviours goes back at least as far as ancient Greek mythology. We now live at a time when the technology of robotics has caught up with human imagination. Recent advances in robotics have been inspired by discoveries about how our own brains work, and the Cognitive Robotics lab in the Department of Neuroscience is working at the front of this field. In this public lecture, I will describe and demonstrate some of the innovations we’ve worked on in the past few years, and explain how they follow from basic neuroscience research. I’ll also discuss how artificial intelligence and robotics is likely to affect our lives and our communities…
