Top teams from world-renowned universities will compete at RoboCup 2010


Singapore, 6 May 2010 – Singaporeans will be able to watch the best robotics talent from prestigious schools such as Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Carnegie Mellon University and Osaka University in action next month (June) at RoboCup 2010.
The top teams are among robotics enthusiasts from over 40 countries including Germany, Japan, and China and as far as Slovenia, who have already registered to take part.
The world’s largest robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) event, touted as the “Olympics” in the industry, will make its Southeast Asia debut in Singapore at the week-long event from 19 to 25 June at Suntec City Convention Centre. The programme will include competitions, a symposium and exhibitions. 
Jointly organised by Singapore Polytechnic (SP), Science Centre Singapore (SCS) and the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), RoboCup 2010 is testament to Singapore’s growing position as a regional Robotics and Intelligent Systems hub.
Mr Tan Hang Cheong, Co-chair for Steering Committee, RoboCup 2010 and Principal of Singapore Polytechnic said, “As the first polytechnic to offer tertiary robotics education, SP is proud to be a part of RoboCup 2010. Our students and staff are excited and enthusiastic about gaining valuable experience and cross-cultural exposure that will help them on academic and personal levels.
“The intellectual and cultural exchange with teams from leading educational institutions in the world will offer valuable experience and learning opportunities that help nurture the youth of today to become beacons of the future.”
Close to 4,000 competition participants and over 500 teams will pit their brains, brawns and skills against each other during the RoboCup competitions. The overwhelming response was driven by a hike in registration numbers from Asian countries such as Singapore, China and Japan.
