Curriculum Vitae

Benedikt Feldotto received a Bachelor of Engineering in Mechatronics from Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW), also gaining industry work experience in the pre-development of automation and including a development stay in the USA. Based on his general engineering education he specialized in autonomous robotic systems implementing findings from Cognitive Neuroscience with the Master of Science program in "Robotics, Cognition, Intelligence" at Technical University of Munich (TUM). In 2017 Benedikt Feldotto joined the research group of Neurorobotics in the European Human Brain Project (HBP). His research interests focus on biomimetic learning in neurorobotic systems and the interaction of robots with humans as well as the environment. Additional discussions about ethical concerns arising with learning robots joining our daily life are very welcomed.
