Fieldwork on Robotics @the University of Cambridge

Dr Fumiya Iida’s Bio-Inspired Robotics Lab

February 7th, 2019, I have done my fieldwork on Robotics at the University of Cambridge.

I visited Dr Fumiya Iida’s Bio-Inspired Robotics Lab, Dept. of Engineering, University of Cambridge.

I enjoyed talking with Dr Iida about the future of robot society.

He has been working for robots who create other robots by themselves.  What is the most interesting things for him now is to find the Robots’ DNA!
