Are you a coder or an artist, with a flair for programming?! At our 4-week Robot-in-Residence programme you will program a robot and equip it with new skills. Knowledge of the coding language Python is considered advantageous.
The application deadline is on the 5th of February 2021. For your participation, which includes writing a weekly blog, you will receive a stipend amounting to € 1.200.
What is Robot-in-Residence?Several NAO 6 humanoid robots went on a journey around Europe. In each place they stop, they will learn a new skill.
Time period15th of February – 15th of March 2021
Technical informationThe robot will be sent to each team accompanied by a Notebook computer and a Fritz-Box router. The computer has already been installed with the coding programme CHOREGRAPHE . It is a piece of coding software, that is known as being very straight forward to use, even for the beginner. Concepts are explained in simple language. Participants will be able to complete simple sequences of motion not long after starting to work with the NAO robot. The robot is programmed using the Python coding language.
SupportThe RoboticLab of the TH Wildau (Technical College) can be contacted if you have any technical questions during the programme.
Background of the projectThe Robot-in-Residence initiative is part of a project called Generation A = Algorithm. The multidisciplinary project was kicked off in May 2020 with various initiatives in order to explore the question of how Artificial Intelligence (AI) can and will change the world. Prominent themes are ethics, labour, creativity, and climate change. Generation A focuses on the involvement of the so-called Generations Y & Z (18 to 30 year olds) in the whole of Europe, because this group will steer the course for the next generations and their eventual daily interactions with algorithms will be decisive. A Europe-wide network of experts in the field of AI is following the project.
Generation A=Algorithmus is a Goethe-Institut project, funded by special funds allocated by the German Federal Foreign Office.
