Grasp Not Acquired

Then I applied myself to the understanding of wisdom, and also of madness and folly, but I learned that this, too, is a chasing after the wind.

Ecclesiastes 1:17

This is my research and teaching website, wherein I will describe my own attempts to chase the wind, to grasp it, to ask a robot to grasp it, to teach a robot to understand what it means to grasp it, and to one day have that robot tell me something about what it feels like to touch it. Also, if I could somehow get that robot to at least beep and wobble or something, that would be a good start.

It’s all quite exciting.

This website replaces my previous research website at the University of Birmingham, which has recently been disabled.

Since September 2013 I am at Istanbul Technical University.
