Professor Margrit Betke (Computer Science), Professor Mike Hasselmo (Psychological & Brain Sciences), and Professor Chantal Stern (Psychological & Brain Sciences) are part of a team with faculty from the BU College of Engineering and MIT that received a $7.5-million Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI) grant from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). With this grant, the team will develop a novel category of neuro-inspired autonomous robots for land, sea, and air that the investigators have termed “neuro-autonomous.” The initiative will tackle the challenge of how to make robots truly autonomous as well as provide important insights into the process of learning and memory formation. You can read about the team and their work here.
