Symposium: Building Bodies for Brains & Brains for Bodies

Date: 16.06.2017
Venue: Biotech Campus Geneva
Duration: 1 day

It was a one-day symposium in the field of neurorobotics with the goal of improving robot behavior by exploiting ideas from neuroscience and investigating brain function using real physical robots or simulations thereof.
Contributions to this workshop focussed on (but not limited to) the relation between neural systems – artificial or biological – and soft-material robotic platforms, in particular the “control” of such systems by capitalizing on their intrinsic dynamical characteristics like stiffness, viscosity and compliance.
