About the webinar

Moore’s law, i.e. the doubling of computing power every two years, is chasing us with its exponential rate of change. This enables fast developments in sensor technology, AI computing and in robotics and automotive. Our group is world champion in soccer playing robots. The question is when will they be better than humans? And what will happen if we would make mixed teams, like the cobots in industry? What we learn with playing robot soccer is also applicable to service robotics for care at home, and to autonomous guided vehicles for agriculture, logistics and industrial applications. We teach our robots to navigate, but when will robots start to teach us? Are humans in the end necessary?
