Interactive learning, Adaptation to the environment

Shingo  Shimoda

Research Area

The amazing ability of living organisms to adapt to unknown situations is so unique that we cannot understand it through the conventional model-based control strategy. Our approach is to find the design principle of biological computational systems and apply it to artificial controllers. Using bio-mimetic controllers, we will work towards developing controllers that can learn autonomous behavior through the interaction of robot bodies and unknown environments.
