Will advances in artificial intelligence bring us closer to having robots in our homes? A Michigan Engineering expert weighs in on the goals and outlook for research in making robots that think like humans.

The idea of artificial intelligence is rooted in creating a mind that has the same flexibilities and capabilities of a human mind -- or even more. Although research has been advanced in a variety of areas of human intelligence, such as voice and face recognition, the next question will be how to integrate the separate aspects into a fully capable brain, says U-M professor Satinda Baveja.

About the Professor: Satinder Singh Baveja (https://www.eecs.umich.edu/eecs/etc/f...) is a Professor of Computer Science and Engineering (http://www.eecs.umich.edu/cse/) at the University of Michigan College of Engineering (http://www.engin.umich.edu/). His research interests include reinforcement learning, machine learning, computational game theory and adaptive human computer interaction.
