Join us at BIYSC! How can I make a robot social ?

By Jordi Albó (Visiting Professor at Tufts University / Associate Professor at La Salle BCN / Robotics Director at La Salle Almere), co-coordinator of the project “Bioinspired/Social Robots and IoT: an example of a Cloud Robotics System“.

To be or not to be a robot, this is the question. The near future is bringing robots to everyone live, and you might be an active player of this future. These robots are becoming social, what means that are performing social behavior like humans or animals do.

How can I make a robot social, and how I can make it feel emotions, and how I can feed it with information through the connectivity to the social media? Let’s do that in this workshop that covers the fundamental topics about nowadays robotics: Cutting-edge Arduino-based technology microcontrollers, electronic sensors, mechanical actuators,  internet of things and cloud computing, affective computing, evolving systems. Participants are going to work on teams and learn by doing:

  • To build their own social robot from scratch.
  • to design its embodiment and behavior
  • to 3D print the pieces
  • to build, assemble
  • and integrate them with the sensors, processors, and actuators
  • to code the behavioral control system
  • to connect them to the public network to make them interact with them and with real people
  • and to test them in a real environment

This workshop is for all these people who is interested not only in the technology (no previous experience is required) but also in the biology, psychology, and humanistic side of the intelligent machines that are going to surround our lives in the next present.

Join us at BIYSC! Your challenge is to identify a problem unsolved, or improperly unsolved in our society. Search how nature fixes it. And design a robot that solves it. Finally, you will have to extend the capabilities of your robotic platform providing connectivity to the cloud, turning your robot into an IoT device.  APPLY NOW!
