Austin: Part IV: The Department

Posted in General at 11:41 am by Ian

In the morning, we went in to meet various people in the department, who gave some presentations on the research they’re doing. The coolest by far was Peter Stone, who demonstrated some of his robot dogs playing soccer. Check out his stuff here. The other presentations were ok, but honestly, Peter Stone is the reason I applied to U Texas in the first place.

I took notes on the other presentations, and they were interesting, sometimes intellectually, and sometimes as a possible source of research, but I won’t bore you with them here. Still, this session in complement with talking to a few professors that afternoon made me realize that there were lots of areas I was interested in.
