NSF-EFRI: Brain-inspired Algorithms for Autonomous Robots

Profs. Wang, Hayhoe, Wei, and Zhu recently received an NSF Emerging Frontiers in Research and Innovation (EFRI) award “Brain-inspired Algorithms for Autonomous Robots (BAAR)”.  This cross-disciplinary project is a collaboration among four disciplines: Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science, Neuroscience, and Psychology. With over $2M from NSF, the research aims to develop novel AI algorithms with principles of neurobiological learning and insights into brain intelligence for autonomous robots such as self-driving vehicles and household collaborative robots.  More information here.
