Dear friends of NeuroRobotics,
as some of you already know – in the context of Barbara Webb ‘s visit to Berlin – we will organize a small meeting thematically revolving around neural modelling and neuro-robotics.
This “mini-symposium” will take place
Monday, Feb 16th, 9:30 – 12:00, in the kitchen/conference room of Arnimallee 7
Scheduled speakers (20 min max.) are:
- Joachim Haenicke (modelling of classical conditioning in honeybees)
- Rinaldo Betkiewicz (modelling of olfactory coding in insects)
- Benjamin Wild, Dennis Schmoldt (neural control of and learning models in robots)
- Jurek Müller (analysis of elementary neural processing units)
We look forward to seeing and discussing with you!
NeuroCopter gets a full-page article in the German newspaper “Tagesspiegel” (August 23rd 2014). It is available online here:
Thanks to Ben and Adam for flying the machine!
The German TV show “Elektrischer Reporter” has featured the work of the Biorobotics Lab. Check it out!
In an article published February 14th, KurweilAI.net reports on our IEEE/EMBS Neural Enginieering paper.
Our exclusive lab photographer Jon took some marvellous shots of NeuroRover, our small tank robot that uses honeybee brain structures to learn its environment.
On Thursday, February 6th, Martin was speaking on RBB’s Kulturradio about the NeuroRover and NeuroRobotics in general. Tune in:
Listen to MP3
In a related project “NeuroRover”, we use spiking neural networks to control small robots. The robot’s brain, inspired by neural structures found in the honeybee, enables the machine to dynamically learn its environment and approach landmarks of interest – similar to bees approaching nectar-rich flowers.
