In the spring of 2013, a team of robots programmed by Bar-Ilan University Professor Gal Kaminka reached the RoboCup world soccer championship game, the robotic version of the World Cup final.
In just one of many extraordinary high-tech projects which he oversees, Kaminka combines social psychology theories with the best microchips and circuitry Israel has to offer in designing robotic teamwork. Kaminka works his high-tech magic in the robotics and artificial intelligence lab of the Department of Computer Science at Bar-Ilan University in Ramat Gan.
His technology is helping to keep Israel safe and on the cusp of new scientific breakthroughs. Some of his robotic programming is employed by the IDF in patrolling the dangerous borders and tunnels of the Gaza strip. It’s an invaluable, high-tech alternative that keeps Israeli soldiers from harm’s way.
