Head of Department delivers presentation at international workshop SelPhyS 2019

Posted on 29 April 2019

Professor Andy Tyrrell presented work on the use of biology as an inspiration for robotic and computer hardware design.

Professor Andy Tyrrell, head of the Department, recently gave an Invited Keynote presentation at the fourth International Workshop on Self-awareness in Cyber-Physical Systems (SelPhyS 2019) in Munich. His talk, entitled ‘Bio-inspired hardware for self-aware architectures and robots: knobs and monitors’, discussed the use of biology as an inspiration for robotic and computer hardware design. The talk had a particular emphasis on integrating self-awareness into hardware design, allowing robots and computers to detect their own malfunctions and repair them, without the input of the user.
