TAROS 2013

I was in Oxford at the end of August where I presented the Coy-B project at the 14th TAROS conference. TAROS stands for Towards Autonomous RObotics Systems. It is attended by an international crew of specialists from academia and business. I was hoping to make contact with interested robotic scientists who would share my view that it is important to reflect on what are these cybernetic creatures and what would a cybernetic wilderness be?

During my short presentation I noticed that one member of the audience was nodding vigorously. He introduced himself afterwards and we had a couple of good conversations in the next couple of days. It is too early to disclose the details, but I was invited to present the project to his team, which went well. Hopefully a collaboration will get started within the next few months, depending on funding. Watch this space…
