The Movement Generation and Control Group is an important partner of the new European Project Memmo
The EU funded Memmo project aims to revolutionize the way robots with arms and legs move by developing novel real-time methods for motion generation of complex robot, able to cope with the complexity of humanoid and other legged robots in realistic industrial and medical environments. The 4-year-project, led by the LAAS-CNRS in France, involves 10 different partners across Europe including the Movement Generation and Control Group at MPI-IS.

Scientists developed specially coated nanometer-sized vehicles that can be actively moved through dense tissue like the vitreous of the eye. So far, the transport of nano-vehicles has only been demonstrated in model systems or biological fluids, but not in real tissue. The work was published in the journal Science Advances and constitutes one step further towards nanorobots becoming minimally-invasive tools for precisely delivering medicine to where it is needed.
Maria Wirzberger has joined our lab as a postdoc. Her work will primarily focus on executive functions training and intelligent cognitive tutors. She holds a multidisciplinary background that spans psychology, education, and computer science and recently submitted her Ph.D. thesis at TU Chemnitz. Welcome Maria!
Tübingen - On Thursday 26th October, Baden-Württemberg's Science Minister Theresia Bauer visited us at the Institute. Media representatives from the region were also invited. The reason for the event was to present the Cyber Valley Initiative - one of the largest research cooperations in Europe in the field of artificial intelligence - to the press.
