Ayanna M. Howard helps robots become more like people. “We’re not that efficient,” she says, “yet somehow we still survive.” In her research, Dr. Howard, the Motorola Foundation professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech, asks: “What is it that allows us to still function? Can we grab some of that information and learn about that and provide it to robotics?”
