Convergent Science Network Podcast
Thoughts, discussions, and achievements in neurobiologic, biomimetic and biohybrid systems
We can learn a lot from brains and bodies when making machines and robots. But reversely, building complex machine systems can also give ideas about how brains and bodies have implemented their functioning over the evolution of ages. This podcast discusses various themes and aspects in-between robotics, neuroscience, cognitive science, artificial intelligence, biology, and technology. Podcast interviews are conducted by Paul Verschure (iCrea professor at SPECS, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona) and Tony Prescott (Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience, University of Sheffield). The Convergent Science Network of biomimetic and biohybrid systems (CSN) is a coordination action for the development of future real-world technologies. CSN is supported through the Future and Emerging Technology programs (FET) of the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) work programme of Framework Programme 7 of the European Commission. Podcast production: Sytse Wierenga & Alberto Betella.
