Only on campus*:   the course will only be offered if physical presence on campus is possible; otherwise it will be cancelled.

Content
  • Biologically-inspired approaches to robotics - embodied artificial intelligence, neurorobotics and biorobotics
  • Biological neurons and their simplified engineering models
  • Simple artificial neural brains for sensing and control
  • Learning mechanisms in biological neurons and their simplified engineering models
  • Learning in artificial neural brains
  • Group project

Having completed the course the successful student will be able to:
  • Posing a robotic problem as a neural learning problem
  • Building appropriate neural brains to solve robotic problems

Having completed the course the successful student will be able to:
  • Construct simple neural brains for robots to solve a task
  • Apply biological learning algorithms to allow robots to learn
Mandatory prerequisites: Students should have some knowledge of Matlab and at least one of the following programming languages – C/C++ or Python. Basic knowledge of reading from sensors and control of motors used in mechatronics and robotics is a plus.

Admission/Tuition: NOTE: Exchange students from a partner university pay no tuition. Guest students pay tuition fees. Please read more: https://www.sdu.dk/en/Uddannelse/SDU_summer_school/Fees
