Workshop: Robot Brains: Robotics Roadshow

Come along to the Robot Brains workshop to get the chance to learn about and try your hand at programming a robot mind!

This workshop is hosted by Sheffield Robotics and the EU Human Brain Project where we study Artificial Intelligence (AI). Creating an artificial brain is one of the greatest challenges in the field of AI, and so engineers often try to mimic biology. Participants in the workshop will learn a few of the ways we enable robots to ‘think’. You will get the chance to write your own algorithms and find out how robot minds learn from their environments.

The interactive workshop will:
• Teach visitors the basics of robotics and algorithms
• Have visitors write their own algorithm for a robot to move in patterns
• Provide the chance to test their code on a robot
