Prof. Giulio Sandini
Robotics, Brain and Cognitive Sciences Unit of the Italian Institute of Technology, Italia

The talk is divided in three parts. In the first part I will present a brief overview of the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT) and an outline of its ongoing scientific research plan and current achievements. In the second part, I will introduce the “Science-Technology-Society” research methodology we are following in the Robotics, Brain and Cognitive Sciences (RBCS) unit of IIT. I will do that by showing a few example of how from knowledge acquired through studies addressing fundamental scientific question on human perception, it has been possible to develop new technologies and to demonstrate their social value in application areas such as rehabilitation and support to persons with sensory disabilities. In the last part of the presentation, I will concentrate on RBCS’s activities on social robotics based on the use of the iCub humanoid robot as a tool to investigate how humans communicate through actions exploiting the foundations of embodied intelligence.
