This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Animals and robots connected to a common society is no longer just science-fiction material, but a reality. Autonomous robots are specifically introduced in animal societies and behave as their animal teammates.
Talk language: German

Thomas Schmickl is a professor and the founder of the Artificial Life Lab at the University of Graz.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
