One Giant Leap for Machinekind?


September 5, 2000

Pradeep Khosla, Dowd Professor of ECE and Department head, was quoted in a recent LA Times article (8/31/00) on robots.

"A next important step is to develop robots that can design themselves for one task, and with the aid of sensors taking in information, be able to morph into new robots for additional tasks, said Pradeep Khosla, head of the departments of electrical and computer engineering at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. Although he called the new research extremely interesting, he also said any robots deployed in the real world would need to be more robust than those created by a 3-D printer."
