Many movies show humanoid robots, but how capable are actual humanoid robots today? What are their abilities? What are their current limitations? What can we expect in the near future?

This presentation will highlight videos from the recent "DARPA Robotics Competition" and video of the NASA "Valkyrie" humanoid robot.

Presenter Dr. Matt Johnson is one of the lead roboticists at the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition in Pensacola, Matt is passionate about making robotic systems more flexible, resilient and effective through human-machine teamwork. In support of this, he is interested in robot control theory, human-centered computing, human factors, and interface design. Currently Matt is involved in several projects including the "National Robotics Initiative: Toward Humanoid Avatar for Co-exploration of Hazardous Environments"
