Directeur de recherche CNRS
Research: Cognitive robots

AI was born to address Alan Turing's question:  "Can machines think?" (Computing Machinery and Intelligence. Mind 49, pp 433-460, 1950).

A robot is a machine
endowed with computational capacities, and with sensors and actuators, situated in the real world.
A grand challenge facing robotics today is to address Alan Turing's question rephrased as
"Can robots exhibit cognitive capacities?".

My research follows an integrative and constructive approach on four interleaved issues that make cognition
(in reference to natural cognition in humans and animals):

Projects: Assistant and companion robots, Planetary rovers.
