On July 1st, Dr. David Barnard became the 11th President of the University of Manitoba. Since he is a computer scientist by trade, we were asked to be part of the welcoming ceremony in the Atrium by bringing out one of the robots. It was a bit of an awkward display, since the working infrared connectors for the humanoids were all away on competition, and the back-up cabling was a little finicky, but we still managed to get him up and waving.  More pictures in the associated gallery.

We will be be attending RoboCup 2018 in Montreal, the first time RoboCup has come to Canada!

The Autonomous Agents Laboratory is one of the research laboratories within the Department of Computer Science at the University of Manitoba, and is directed by Dr. John Anderson and Dr. Jacky Baltes. The goal of our work is the improvement of technology surrounding hardware and software agents as well as the development of applications employing these technologies. We are especially interested in cooperation in multi-agent settings, and the infrastructure necessary to support this and other forms of social interaction in intelligent systems.
