Jennifer and the UofM Humanoids team competed at the IRC Robot World in Seoul, Korea. Robot World is the largest robotics event in Korea with 12,000 participants and spectators. Jennifer won 3rd place in the sprint event and in the marathon. There were 12 teams total and new world records in both events. The team's Firefly hats were also apparently a big media hit.

We will be hosting RoboCup 2018 in Montreal, the first time RoboCup has come to Canada!  Jacky Baltes will be the General Chair of the event.

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.
