Honda's Humanoid Robots Learning to Behave

Prof. Edgar Körner, President of Honda's Europe research institute presented the IET 2009 Tustin Lecture last Thursday, 7 May 2009

Apart from learning that Asimo robot's control includes use of joysticks, Professor Körner enlightened on his research team's approach at Honda to intelligence: as a "technology and strategy for robust and flexible problem-solving in short time" and treat the brain as a "dynamical control system for organising behaviour and predict outcome of more specific behaviours" with the essence of any intelligent system is the "control of learning".
