Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) Innovation Community Meeting

18 Oct 2019

Taking place on Wednesday, 30 October from 11:30 am - 2:30 pm


The Research Lifecycle Programme would like to invite current users and interested researchers to a lunch meeting to discuss the use of Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) in research across the University, providing an excellent networking opportunity.   

The idea of the Innovation Communities is to share experiences and common interests and discuss ways in which we can work better together to use available resources and generate an inclusive community that can collaborate internally and apply for research funding collectively.  

The intention of the meeting is to bring together researchers and staff with an interest in Robotics and AI from across the University. It will include short research presentations, a networking lunch and group discussion on how to better foster collaboration and how to generate a thriving community. 

The following presentations are planned for the meeting, but please get in touch if you'd like to present: 

  • Agile Robots Inspired by Animals, Ben Parslew, MACE 
  • Predicting the Human in HRI and Other Things, Guido Herrmann, EEE 
  • Small Molecule Robots, David Leigh, Chemistry 
  • Deep Learning and Machine Vision, Hujun Yin, EEE, FSE

This Innovation Community meeting will be on Wednesday, 30 October (11:30 am - 2:30 pm) in room 3.44A in the Simon Building.
