Professor Jeff Krichmar’s Research

Professor Krichmar is currently a professor in the Department of Cognitive Sciences and the Department of Computer Science at the University of California, Irvine. His research interests include neurorobotics, embodied cognition, biologically plausible models of learning and memory, and the effect of neural architecture on neural function.

Research

Neurorobotics or Brain-Based Robotics
– Neuromodulation as a robot controller
– Socially Assistive Robot that focuses on touch

Neuromorphic Computing
– Spiking Neural Network of Motion Perception and Visual Navigation

Goals of Neurorobotics

Understanding Through Building

– Building physical systems that demonstrate cognitive abilities could lead
to a better understanding of the neural machinery that realizes cognitive
function

Building More Intelligent Machines

– Constructing physical systems could lead to a system that demonstrates
capabilities commonly found in the animal kingdom, but rarely found in
artificial systems
