Giving Robots Human Qualities

Posted 2 Jan 2007 at 23:40 UTC by steve Share This

A Merced Sun Star article summarizes research being done at the University of California, Merced's School of Engineering by Marcelo Kallmann. He has a general interest in making robots think like humans, move like humans, and look like humans; but his immediate research is on the problem of humanlike movement or, as he calls it, "intelligent movement". His goal is achieve open-ended learning and reuse of movement that leads to the emergence of entirely new motions. For details on Kallmann's ideas, see his papers, Hierarchical Motion Controllers for Real-Time Autonomous Virtual Humans (PDF format) and Planning Motions in Motion (PDF format).
