Join a fascinating lecture from an award winning scientist wanting to put intelligence into robots.

"Walking animals, like stick insects, cockroaches or ants, are able to perform a variety of movements and can traverse diverse terrains. During traversing, they can also adapt their locomotion to deal with terrain changes. They can also effectively navigate to find their goal in complex environments. Neurobiologists suggest that solving these tasks basically results from a combination of brain and biomechanics. In this talk I will present how we, inspired by neurobiology, develop brain-like mechanisms (i.e., neural control, memory, and learning) and biomechanics for our multi sensori-motor robotic systems (i.e., walking robots). Our approach allows the robots to effectively interact with the environment; thereby performing complex behaviors. These behaviors include adaptive locomotion on difficult terrains, a multitude of different walking patterns, proactive behavior, memory-guided behavior, and goal-directed behavior."

The event will take place in U101.


Dr. Poramate Manoonpong, born 1978 in Nan, studied Mechatronics at Ravensburg-Wein - garten University and
gained a Ph.D. degree at Siegen University. He works as an Associate Professor of embodied Artificial Intelligence at the University of Southern Denmark and as an Emmy Noether research group leader for „Neural Control, Memory and Learning for Complex Behaviors in Multi Sensorik-Motor Robotic Systems“ at BCCN, the University of Goettingen.
