The RoboCup 2007 competition is being held this week at the Georgia Tech campus in Atlanta.

What is RoboCup? From the main site:

RoboCup is an international joint project to promote AI, robotics, and related field. It is an attempt to foster AI and intelligent robotics research by providing a standard problem where wide range of technologies can be integrated and examined. RoboCup chose to use soccer game as a central topic of research, aiming at innovations to be applied for socially significant problems and industries. The ultimate goal of the RoboCup project is ‘By 2050, develop a team of fully autonomous humanoid robots that can win against the human world champion team in soccer.’

Nearly 1700 students and faculty from 300 teams and 117 countries will be competing in events ranging from four-legged and humanoid robotic soccer games to search-and-rescue competitions. Here are some images from RoboCup 2006:
