Prof Berthouze has a new EPSRC program grant starting on 1st February 2021!
Prof. Nadia Berthouze is UCL lead on a project starting February 2021 - the project is called From Sensing to Collaboration: Engineering, Exploring and Exploiting the Building Blocks of Embodied Intelligence. She will be working with Dr Steve Fleming from the Institue of Neurology on this project.
With significant support from EPSRC, UCL together with the University of Oxford and a cohort of academic, industrial and deployment partners are embarking on an ambitious five-year programme of work on Engineering, Exploring and Exploiting the Building Blocks of Embodied Intelligence. The overarching aim of this research programme is to deliver autonomous systems which amplify human capacity and potential. Currently, robots are too specialised, uncooperative and too unsafe to be productive at scale. To contribute to productivity in strategically important areas such as social care, manufacturing, logistics, service, inspection or agriculture, future generations of robots need to be able to sense, interpret, act, navigate, coordinate and collaborate with an unprecedented acuity.
