Randy Pausch – The Last Lecture

10 years ago, “Carnegie Mellon Professor Randy Pausch (Oct. 23, 1960 – July 25, 2008) gave his last lecture at the university Sept. 18, 2007, before a packed McConomy Auditorium. In his moving presentation, “Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams,” Pausch talked about his lessons learned and gave advice to students on how to achieve their own career and personal goals.”

Ever notice how people texting at night have that eerie blue glow? Or wake up ready to write down the Next Great Idea, and get blinded by your computer screen?

The Stanford University Learning Locomotion Project

The Stanford University Learning Locomotion Project.


Legged robots, unlike wheeled robots, have the potential to access nearly all of the earth’s land mass, enabling robotic applications in areas where they are currently infeasible. However, the current control software for legged robots is quite limited, and does not let them realize this potential.

In the Learning Locomotion project, we seek to develop software that significantly advances the state of the art in robotic quadruped locomotion over rough terrain. To achieve this goal, we develop and apply novel control and machine learning algorithms.
