What can we learn from Robot Athletes? | Jacky Baltes | TEDxUManitoba

08/04/2016 18:41:54

This talk introduces research into humanoid robotics and gives a short introduction to robots' athletic competitions. These prestigious international competitions attract thousands of participants from all over the world. The talk includes demos of our robots performing these sports. However, the main focus of the talk is on the impact of these robot competitions on team members. Most importantly, it shows that the difference between a winning and a losing team is often not their technical skills, but their attitude.


Dr. Baltes has been working on Intelligent Robots since 1996 and on humanoid robots since 2002. He is using robot athletes as benchmark problems for research. He is
the founder of the HuroCup competition - a decathlon for humanoid robots. His robot teams have won many awards at International robot competitions including HuroCup, RoboCup, IRC, and ICRA.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
