Dr Chiara Bartolozzi, head of the Event-Driven Perception for Robotics group at the Italian Institute for Technology in Genoa, develops analog sub-threshold circuits to make bio-inspired brains for robots. Her group focuses on exploiting information from event-driven vision and tactile sensors for cognitive tasks, and she works extensively with iCub: a research platform in the form of a robot child, developed in Italy and used throughout Europe. In this episode of Brains and Machines, you’ll hear her talk to Sunny about how neuromorphic technology can be used to implement attention mechanisms, the importance of embodiment, and why we need a solid theory of how neural systems can work together to create intelligence. Discussion follows with Giulia and Ralph.
