Samenvatting

The agile nature of physical interactions in animal and plant species has inspired
many recent advances in robotics and their control frameworks. However, they still face
challenges in interaction with ever-changing unconstructured world that we live in. Intelligence
is one of nature’s survival solutions for biological creatures to adapt to and reshape their
surroundings. Our robots are no different in these remits. An important key to their survival
and effectiveness in the natural world is the concept of Artificial Intelligence (AI). In this chapter
we provide a brief overview of the rapidly emerging Soft Robotics research community around
AI relevant concepts such as Embodied intelligence and Morphological Computation. More
specifically, we focused on the importance of setting such “community goals” to create a diverse
interdisciplinary research environment, an enormously important element to keep up with our
rapidly progressing world. To this end, we focused on the collaborations withing and between
the communities, impacts of the recently established IEEE Soft Robotics Technical Committee
on coordinating these efforts, and most important of all, the key ideas and perspectives based
on 200 interviews with researchers across different fields
