Animals including human invest significant neuronal and metabolic resources for motor tasks. While the higher cognitive circuits responsible for motor-learning and the exact biomechanics underlying the behavior can vary greatly across animals, the sensorimotor strategies and neuromechanics that enable complex behaviors can transcend the individuality of animal species and even robots. I believe that this is the interface where we can take the first principles from the biological systems to bridge our rapidly developing artificial intelligence with advanced mechatronics.
Huai-Ti’s laboratory officially opened in Spring 2017 at Imperial College London, London, UK.
