ShanghAI Lectures

Overview

These lectures about Natural and Artificial Intelligence are held via videoconference at the University of Zurich in Switzerland, the University of Salford/MediaCityUK in the United Kingdom, Shanghai Jiao Tong University in China, and about 12 other universities around the globe. Students from the participating universities work together on the exercises, using a powerful robotics simulator software.

The ShanghAI Lectures project aims at

  • making education and knowledge on cutting-edge scientific topics accessible to everyone
  • exploring novel methods of knowledge transfer
  • building a sustainable community of students and researchers in the area of Embodied Intelligence
  • overcoming the complexity of a multi-cultural and interdisciplinary learning context
  • bringing global teaching to a new level
