Dr Anthony Morse

I am a Senior Post-Doc Research Fellow on the POETICON++ project in the Centre for Robotics and Neural Systems at the University of Plymouth. I've previously also worked as a post-doc on theĀ ITALK project and the ICEA project

My primary research interests are in the development of theories, experiments, and robotic models of the early stages of developmental psychology, in particular the role embodiment, space, and language plays in shaping cognition, and how phenomena typically treated separately can be integrated and understood as interdependent. I see cognitive robotics as a tool that can transform our understanding of human cognition.

I am also the Secretary for the International Society for Adaptive Behaviour, and Treasurer of Little Bo People - a Totnes based charity and sheep co-operative

The Robots Are Here...

We might be a long way from the robots of Hollywood films but things are changing fast, sales in service robots from autonomous cleaners to toys are in exponential growth, 2006 saw more unit sales in this category in one year than in the entirety of sales up to that point, and this growth isn't slowing down. At one end of the spectrum this means some simple robotic autonomy in toys, moving up the spectrum we find simple robots like the Nau, Pleo, and so on up to robots like Romeo, iCub, and Asimo. As the technology behind clever, intelligent, and learning robots becomes cheeper, more and more applications are arising in the public market... The future is autonomous...
