Research interest

On UvA experts in artificial intelligence page my research interest is summarized as follows:

Arnoud Visser is a lecturer in Computer Science. His areas of expertise are artificial intelligence and robotics. The focus of his research is on the cooperation of robot teams, especially in the context of the RoboCup competitions.

Current projects

  1. Planetary Robotics
  2. Meaningful Control of Autonomous Systems
  3. RoboCup Rescue
  4. Dutch Nao Team

Future location (2021-)

The research is performed inside the Intelligent Robotics Lab.
