Neurorobotics Research Laboratory

Team

The team led by Prof. Dr. Manfred Hild consists of eleven employees. As part of studies and theses, the team is accompanied by additional freelancers. Every wednesday the conjoint Jour fixe takes place, where daily work is coordinated. Specially organized workshops serve as further education and focused content exchange.

Prof. Dr. Manfred Hild

Prof. Dr. Manfred Hild

Manfred studied mathematics and psychology at the Universität Konstanz, Germany, and got his doctoral degree at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Since 2014 he is professor for Digital Systems at the Beuth University of Applied Sciences Berlin.

His scientific interests lie in the following fields: dynamics of recurrent neural networks, humanoids robotics with a special focus on sensorimotor and audio-visual processing, unsupervised learning paradigms for autonomous self-exploration, and parallel distributed systems.

As leader of the Neurorobotics Research Laboratory, he is supervising the design of bionic constructions, electronic circuits, and computational architectures. Further fields of interest are computer music, digital signal processing, and applications of FPGAs.

Benjamin Panreck

Benjamin Panreck

Benjamin studied mechatronics at the Beuth University of Applied Sciences Berlin and currently pursuing his PhD at the Freie Universität Berlin in the field of bioinformatics.

Since the end of 2015 Benjamin directs and coordinates the projekt works of the NRL. He supports the team in the areas of mechanical construction, manufacturing, electronics, control engineering, microcomputer technology and in the development of digital systems.

Benjamin spends his free time for his family and goes climbing.

Peter Hirschfeld

Peter Hirschfeld

Peter studies computer science at the Freie Universität Berlin and is now in his last stage of his M.Sc programm. He is a trained assistant in automatization- and computer technology and passed his Bachelor at the Fachhochschule Brandenburg.

His work includes designing and solder electronical circuits and the electronical maintenance of the robot Myon. In Addition, he helps Myon to learn new moving pattern.

In his spare time, Peter volunters as a lifeguard at the German Lifeguard Association (DLRG), likes to go hiking and has a big interest in survival skills.

Simon Untergasser

Simon Untergasser

Simon studies Naturwissenschaften in der Informationsgesellschaft at TU Berlin and specializes in robotics and artificial intelligence. He works in the Neurorobotics Research Laboratory since April 2016.

His field of work contains speechrecognition and -processing and the implementation of corresponding systems in the humanoid robot Myon.

Simon has great interest in mechanism of nature and ermerging inteligence. Away from science he likes to travel and doing sports.
