Our mission is to make the world excited about the beauty, the fun, the importance, and the challenges of robotics and AI, through learning experiences that are tangible, accessible, and inclusive.
Robotics and AI
The beauty and the fun
AI and robotics are the most beautiful disciplines – it is mankind’s attempt at creating artificial creatures that think and act like us.
And it is fun to see robots go!
The importance and the challenges
AI and robotics will change our world. Everybody should understand the possibilities, the current status and how much is left to do.
Although we organize activities, coordinate donations, and develop tutorials for the Duckietown platform, this is just a means to an end: we care about the experience it enables.
We believe that to learn robotics you have to be able to touch a robot. We learn by handling and doing.
We join the maker spirit with the academic spirit: the experiences are fun, but there is also a path of academic learning.
We promote a broad understanding of the effects of robotics and AI in society, and we want to reach previously underserved geographies and demographics.
We use donations from benefactors to bring the Duckietown experience to communities that could not otherwise engage with it.
