South Korean MBC TV broadcast SPECS reseach with the iCub robot for a documentary on Future Human and AI
On November 8-10, the Korean TV crew visited the SPECS laboratory at UPF in Barcelona. For their documentary on human evolution the Korean TV crew wished to know more how research is carried out with humanoid robots such as the iCub. At SPECS we showed how we develop and advance learning capabilities in this kind of robots including: recognition of different objects, emotional interaction with humans, language understanding.
