Humanity Centered Robotics Initiative Gets New University Support

The Humanity-Centered Robotics Initiative (HCRI) was begun about three years ago by a group of faculty who wanted to bring a wide variety of academic perspectives to bear on the field of robotics. A new commitment from the University will enable the group, which is co-led by Professors Bertram Malle (Cognitive, Linguisti & Psychological Sciences) and Michael Littman (Computer Science), to hire an associate director and postdoctoral researcher, support conferences and symposia, and provide seed funds for new robotics research.
