RoboCup: Robot Football (Soccer)

Posted on December 17, 2008  Comments (6)

RoboCup aims to, by 2050, develop a team of fully autonomous humanoid robots that can win against the human world champion team in football. As the video shows the teams have a ways to go. But this seems like a great process.

    Stumbling over this website, I wanted to point out that the RoboCup 09 will take place in Graz, Austria. It seems that city is proud of the fact ^^. Stay tuned.

    The idea of humanoid football team by 2050 is somewhat scary. The rate at which AI’s are being developed is astonishing as well. I have been exploring this in relation to architecture (my personal interest) but had not been exposed to the “RoboCup.” It’s definitely something I will keep my eyes on. Thanks for the link.
