Beyond Asimov's Rules: Towards Intelligent Robotics

General description

The robotics we used to see in movies and cartoons of the 1960s and 1970s are now starting to become our new reality. The interdisciplinary research and high investment in Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and Big Data leads to the Intelligent Robotics that will rapidly improve human well-being and literally change the human experience. If you would like to know more about this discipline in a practical way in which this technology is now being applied, this is your course!

It is a course aimed at any student from an Engineering background with enthusiasm about the topic. It will give you the chance to learn the latest advances and visit different robotics laboratories, start-ups and/or companies focused on different applications. Lectures and practical sessions will be delivered by leading robotics researchers from University Carlos III of Madrid. We shall try to create a collaborative environment where you will all be able to share your ideas with the other European students.

It will be a pleasure to welcome you to Madrid, show you the city and let you get immersed in Spanish culture. You will make friends from all over Europe while learning together!
