  • Nature makes extensive use of soft actuators in the from of worms, snakes, octopuses, squid tentacles, elephant trunks and many others. Despite robot hardware still relying mainly on hard components, robots have started to incorporate softness with the use of materials similar to those of living organisms.  

    Inspirated by the elegance, adaptability and efficiency of the natural kingdom, biologically inspired soft robots hold great promise for safer and more flexible interactions since they can adapt their shape and behavior to complex, dynamic environments. For example, soft robots can deform and reform, enabling them to absorb much of the energy derived from a collision. At the crossroad of robotics and biology, join this AI for Good webinar to discover the latest bio-inspired soft robots, their main applications for social good, and the challenges for wider implementation of this next generation of AI-powered robots. 

    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.
