Edgar Körner studied electrical engineering, control engineering, and biomedical cybernetics at the Ilmenau Institute of Technology, Germany. From 1976 to 1984 he served as an assistant professor/senior staff researcher establishing the bionics research laboratory at the same university. The research activities included experimental work in neurophysiology and neural systems modelling. From 1984 to 1987, he joined the Bioholonics Project of JRDC (Tokyo) as a research fellow dealing with brain-like vision systems. Back at the Ilmenau Institute of Technology, he continued research in biological vision and neurofuzzy control systems as an associate professor. In 1988, Dr. Körner was appointed full professor for biocybernetics and head of the Department of Neurocomputing and Cognitive Systems. In 1992 he moved to Japan to join Honda R&D's Wako Research Center near Tokyo, focusing as a chief scientist on the brain-like computation research. In 1997 he started research in computational neuroscience, evolutionary technology, and cognitive robotics at Honda R&D Europe, where he served as an executive vice president and head of the Future Technology Research Divison. From 2003 to 2011 he served as the president of the Honda Research Institute Europe GmbH with focus on brain-like artifical neural systems and self organization of knowledge representation for autonomous robots. In April 2011, he was appointed a Honda Fellow focusing on fundamental research and strategic planning in the field of cognitive systems and autonomous robots.
