Change the world with us
At King’s, we know there isn’t just one solution to any complex problem. We have experts who tackle today’s biggest challenges from different perspectives. Here, nano scientists work with historians, medical professionals with social science experts, artists with experts in philosophy.
Together with psychologists from the IOPPN, King’s Dr Oya Celiktutan is developing humanoid robots that will be the basis of the next generation of robots. They will use machine learning to learn how to act in concert with humans, as well as eventually having the capacity to support autism diagnoses and understand depression by reading human emotional characteristics and facial expressions.
This was a great opportunity for us to see the challenges when robots are used in real-world home environments and assisting people living with Motor Neurone Disease.
