The robotics path to AGI using servo stacks
JS Hall ,Proceedings of the Second Conference on Artificial , 2009 ,
Abstract The case is made that the path to AGI through cognitive and developmental robotics is compelling. Beyond the familiar argument that it keeps researchers honest by forcing their systems to cope with the real world, it encourages them to recapitulate the evolutionary

Bipedal dynamic walking in robotics
E Nicholls ,EE Honours Dissertation, 1998
Abstract It is easier for bipedal robots to exist in a human oriented environment than for other types of robots. Furthermore, dynamic walking is more efficient than static walking. For a biped robot achieve dynamic balance while walking, a dynamic gait must be developed.
