Digital Brain to be implanted into a Robot

Cyborg for 2045

The research, being undertaken at the Department of Architecture and Computing Technology at the University of Granada, is part of a wider European project dubbed Sensopac.

The end-game of the two-year project is to implant the man-made cerebellum in a robot to make movements and interaction with humans more natural.
