The graceful and agile movements of animals are difficult to analyze and emulate because locomotion is the result of a complex interaction of many components, namely the central and peripherical nervous systems, the musculoskeletal system, and the environment.
In this context, the emerging field of biorobotics, which draws on biological principles to design robots with sensorimotor skills that approach those of animals, is increasingly exploring the use robots to investigate animal locomotion and adaptive behavior, and to test hypotheses about the underlying interactions of body, control and environment.
In this AI for Good webinar, discover the latest advances and challenges in designing robots that properly emulate animals, and how biorobotics could contribute to advance other fields, such as the design of exoskeletons and prosthetic devices that take more account of human locomotion principles.
This live event includes a 15-minute networking event hosted on the AI for Good Neural Network. This is your opportunity to ask questions, interact with the panelists and participants and build connections with the AI for Good community.
