Then: What can Robotics offer to Biology and Psychology in
What form should an interaction between Robotics, Biology and
It is the usefulness if not the need of such an interdisciplinary
collaboration that we have questioned recently in
, held on the 10th of March at the Department of
Artificial Intelligence. At this occasion, more than 80
researchers from Cognitive Science, Psychology, Linguistics, Biology,
Neuroscience, Physiology, Artificial Intelligence, Electrical
Engineering, etc. met for one day of talks and
The general interest the audience showed in such an
interdisciplinary collaboration led us to create this page as a
framework for future collaborative research. This includes a list of
people that have shown their interest either by participating in the
workshop or by emailing us, a list of interdisciplinary projects
actually carried out in the department and finally a list of
conferences and seminars relevant for all these fields.
