The Hand Embodied

Project description

Cognitive Systems and Robotics Advancing the state of the art in artificial system architectures for the "hand" as a cognitive organ The scientific goals of The Hand Embodied concern the reciprocal linkages between the physical hand and its high-level control functions, and about the way that the embodiment enables and determines its behaviours and cognitive functions.  The idea is to study how the embodied characteristics of the human hand affect and determine the learning and control strategies people use for such fundamental cognitive functions as exploring, grasping and manipulating. The ultimate goal of the project is to learn from human data how to devise improved system architectures for the hand as a cognitive organ, and eventually how to better design and control robot hands, haptic interfaces and hand prostheses.
