Robots in residence

Humanoide robots on tour in europe

Since summer 2020, two NAO robots, GAIA and NaoMI, have been traveling through Europe on different routes - each month they visit a different city. This exciting project of the Goethe-Institut in Munich is part of the project “Generation A = Algorithmus - Nachdenken über Künstliche Intelligenz”, which aims to bring the discussion about Artificial Intelligence to broader social classes.

In the sub-project “Robots in Residence”, humanoid robots are in the spotlight. The focus is on the relationship between man and machine in different cultural contexts. GAIA and NaoMI learn something new at each station. There is a detailed report on the project website of the Munich Goethe Institute.

The RoboticLab is responsible for preparing the NAO robots and providing technical support on their travels. At the final festival of “Generation A = Algorithm” planned for autumn 2021 in Dresden, the two female robots will then present their skills. Both teams in Munich and Wildau are very excited!
