What is the RoboCup?

RoboCup is an international joint project to promote AI, robotics, and other related fields. It is an attempt to foster AI and intelligent robotics research by providing a standard problem where a wide range of technologies can be integrated and examined.

RoboCup chose to use the game of soccer as a central topic of research, aiming at innovations to be applied for socially significant problems and industries. By 2050, the ultimate goal of the RoboCup project is to develop a team of fully autonomous humanoid robots that can win against the human world champion soccer team.
