Welcome to the official website of the Learning Algorithms and Systems Laboratory, or (in French) the Laboratoire d'Algorithmes et Systemes d'Apprentissage (LASA).

Research at LASA develops means by which humans can teach robots to perform skills with the level of dexterity displayed by humans in similar tasks. Our robots move seamlessly with smooth motions. They adapt adequately and on-the-fly to the presence of obstacles and to sudden perturbations, hence mimicking humans. immediate response when facing unexpected and dangerous situations.

Fields covered at LASA include: Learning and Dynamical Systems, Neural Computation and Modeling, Human-Machine Interaction, Humanoids Robotics, Mechatronics, Design of Therapeutic and Educational Devices.
