Evolutionary algorithms are powerful search algorithms which can be used for design exploration, parameter optimization, and adaptation to changing conditions. Evolutionary robotics is the field of applying evolutionary algorithms to robotics, and has the potential to improve robots in a number of ways - from the design of robotic bodies and controllers, to adaptation when the robot suffers from damage or encounters a new environment.
How is rhythm processed in the human brain, and how can we model rhythm in machines? These are central research questions at the new RITMO Centre of Excellence.
We aim to take inspiration from rhythm in humans and other biological systems and develop models of rhythmic motion which can be applied to robotic and computing systems.
In the field of robotics, creating grippers that can perform tasks similar to the capabilities of a human hand, is still a challenge yet to be solved.
Our goal is to contribute to the development of ever more intelligent systems. This can be systems that in specific tasks or environments can assist or replace human judgment, or it can be systems that can accomplish tasks we would like to automate.
