Richard Mitchell




I came to Reading in 1977 as an undergraduate and I have not found my way out yet! I have over 120 publications, including four books and specially written text for a custom book on Cybernetics; and I have been involved in research and industry projects worth approaching £2m, many of these being KTP (formerly TCS) projects. My current interests include cybernetics, mobile robots, artificial intelligence, control engineering, technology enhanced learning for control, Gaia theory.

In 2011 I was awarded a University Teaching Fellowship for my contribution to Teaching and Learning across the University. I was made Senior Fellow of the HEA in 2014.

Explore the history, anatomy and intelligence of robots with this free online course. Test drive robots using exciting simulations. Robots today are roving Mars, collecting data in dangerous environments, hoovering our floors, lifting patients in hospital, building cars and entertaining us in films. And, if you share Bill Gates and Stephen Hawking’s world view, the super intelligent ones may one day bring about the end of the human race.
