Aliased from [Rodney Brooks] 

__Rodney Brooks__ is an Australian [roboticist|https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robotics], author and robotics entrepreneur, former director of the  [MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory|https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MIT_Computer_Science_and_Artificial_Intelligence_Laboratory], perhaps most known for popularising the [actionist approach|https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Behavior_based_robotics] to robotics.

Instead of computation as the ultimate conceptual metaphor that helped [artificial intelligence|https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artificial_intelligence]  become a separate discipline in the scientific community, he proposed that ''action'' or ''behaviour'' are more appropriate to be used in robotics. This is also called __[Behaviour-Based Systems|BehaviourBasedSystems]__ or __[Behaviour-Based Robotics|BehaviourBasedRobotics]__.

In the late 1980s, Brooks and his team introduced [Allen|https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allen_(robot)], a robot using [Subsumption Architecture], a term introduced by Brooks and his colleagues in 1986.

Among Brooks' many publications, his early papers describing what was at that time an entirely different approach to a robot operating system are very interesting.
