Lunar Zebro Lecture: Brainpower: Artificial Intelligence on the Moon

30 september 2022 - 16.00 - 18.00
16.00 - 18.00
Museum Boerhaave / Online

Lecture by Chris Verhoeven about the Lunar Zebros.
On 8 September 2022, the new temporary exhibition BrAInpower will open at Rijksmuseum Boerhaave. In collaboration with Rijksmuseum Boerhaave, Studium Generale has invited several scientists to talk about their research into artificial intelligence. The relationship between mankind and artificial intelligence is central to all these lectures.

Doing research on the moon is not easy, but fortunately robots are increasingly offering a helping hand! At TU Delft, students led by Chris Verhoeven are working on the Lunar Zebros: small, six-legged lunar robots that can cooperate in a swarm, as bees or starlings do. This swarm of lunar robots can independently explore the tunnels and caves of the moon, and thus help people to further map the lunar surface. In this lecture, Chris Verhoeven will talk about the construction of the Lunar Zebros, the challenges involved, previous missions in inhospitable areas on earth, and future missions to the moon and Mars.

Date: Friday, 30 September. 
Time: Walk-in from 16.00, lecture from 16.30 to 17.30, and questions until 18.00.
Location: At the museum or at home via the livestream. Live chat is not available with the live stream.

Free of charge on arrival from 16.00 hrs. If you come to the museum earlier, you will need a valid admission ticket to enter.
