The social robot

Spreker: Prof. dr. Eric Postma

Locatie: Blauwe Zaal Auditorium

In the science fiction movie Ex Machina, an android with artificial intelligence is hardly distinguishable from an actual human being. Is this what the future looks like? Not according to Eric Postma, who works on A.I. techniques to provide robots with social skills but is wary of techno-optimism.

Eric Postma is professor in Artificial Intelligence at the Tilburg center for Cognition and Communication (TiCC) at Tilburg University.  His research focuses on techniques that can provide robots with social skills. His main interest is human perception and cognition, and the modelling thereof with AI techniques.
