Computer Science Colloquium: Barbara Webb speaks on insects and robots

We are happy to announce that our guest Prof. Barbara Webb (University of Edinburgh, UK) will be giving a talk in the frame of our Institute of Computer Science’s Colloquium.

Quick intro: Barbara builds models of biological systems, often focussing on how perception shapes behavior in insects – recently covering more complex capabilities such as learning and navigation. Frequently, these models are implemented as robots – an approach we all know as Biorobotics. Barbara was the first to lay out also the theoretical foundations of this exciting new field.

You are cordially invited to attend this great talk!

Friday, Feb 20th, 14:00 in seminar room #005 (Takustr. 9)
