PhD course in Bioengineering and Robotics – Cognitive Robotics, Interaction and Rehabilitation Technologies page
The PhD Program on “Cognitive Robotics, Interaction and Rehabilitation Technologies” provides interdisciplinary training at the interface between technology and life-sciences with a focus on cognitive science and the use of robots as experimental set-ups to study human cognition and to implement proactive artificial systems.
The 4 fully funded fellowships are offered this year by the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) and Università degli studi di Genova (course code 8638) as part of this curriculum by the Robotics Brain and Cognitive Sciences Unit (RBCS) guided by Giulio Sandini and by the Unit COgNiTive Architecture for Collaborative Technologies (CONTACT) guided by Alessandra Sciutti:
Topics of interest for this call are:
o ENABLING ROBOTS TO UNDERSTAND AND ADAPT TO HUMANS
o ASSESSING AND TRAINING VISUO-HAPTIC EXPLORATION
o PROACTIVE MEMORY IN COGNITIVE ARCHITECTURES FOR HUMAN ROBOT INTERACTION
o ADAPTATION IN COGNITIVE ARCHITECTURES FOR HUMAN ROBOT INTERACTION
o TRUST AND SHARED PERCEPTION IN COGNITIVE ROBOTICS
DESCRIPTIONS OF THEMES AND CONTACTS:
All IIT units involved in this curriculum are located in the “Erzelli” site of the Italian Institute of Technology and share research facilities including, two iCub humanoid robots, eye-tracking and motion capture facilities for Human-Robot and Human-HumanInteraction Studies.
