Professor Leslie Kaelbling (MIT) will deliver the Strachey lecture: Doing for our robots what evolution did for us
Posted: 22nd January 2019
Professor Leslie Kaelbling (MIT) will deliver the next Strachey lecture, 'Doing for our robots what evolution did for us'.
Robot engineers have to think hard about their role in the design of robots and how it interacts with learning, both in "the factory" (that is, at engineering time) and in "the wild" (that is, when the robot is delivered to a customer). Professor Kaelbling will share some general thoughts about the strategies for robot design and then talk in detail about some work she has been involved in, both in the design of an overall architecture for an intelligent robot and in strategies for learning to integrate new skills into the repertoire of an already competent robot.
The lecture takes place at 3pm on 20 February 2019, at the Mathematical Institute, Andrew Wiles Building, Oxford, OX2 6GG. Admission is free but booking is essential. To book, visit https://bit.ly/2B7TPCv
The lecture will be followed by refreshments.
