Our poster titled "Towards Learning Strategies and Exploration Patterns for Feature Perception" received a distinguished poster award!
The IEEE ICDL-EpiRob 2015 “Babybot challenge”
The EPSRC Photography Competition 2015:
Following the success in 2015, Sandy Spence and research staff of the project MoDeL won the 1st prize in the People Category of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) photography competition for a second, consecutive year!
Little Caiya features in 'iCub and the tutor', sharing her toys with the robot while playing.
The image reflects MoDeL's research work, investigating mechanisms that allow the iCub to autonomously learn properties of its immediate physical environment, based on infant development and learning though playing.

The EPSRC Photography Competition 2014:
Starting from data based on behaviour in the womb, the iCub follows the early stages of infant development to be able to learn the coordination between sensors and motors, building up the levels of skills and understanding. This project is exploring the growth of human behaviour in order to produce methods for self-motivated learning robots.
The Greatest Discovery, by Sandy Spence, featuring Ayesha Jones and iCub humanoid robot won the 1st prize in the People Category of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) photography competition.
