Last Sunday we started another series on IEEE/RSJ IROS 2020 (International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems) original series Real Roboticist. In this episode you’ll meet Ruzena Bajczy, Professor Emerita of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of California, Berkeley. She is also the founding Director of CITRIS (the Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society).
In her talk, she explains her path from being an electrical engineer to becoming a researcher with Emeritus honours, and with over 50 years of experience in robotics, artificial intelligence and the foundations of how humans interact with our environment. Are you curious about the tips she’s got to share and her own prediction of the future of robotics? Don’t miss it out!
Daniel Carrillo-Zapata was awared his PhD in swarm robotics at the Bristol Robotics Lab in 2020. He now fosters the culture of “scientific agitation” to engage in two-way conversations between researchers and society.
