#IROS2020 Plenary and Keynote talks focus sequence #three: Anya Petrovskaya & I-Ming Chen
On this new launch of our sequence showcasing the plenary and keynote talks from the IEEE/RSJ IROS2020 (Worldwide Convention on Clever Robots and Methods) you’ll meet Dr. Anya Petrovskaya (Stanford College), speaking about driverless autos and area robots, and Prof. I-Ming Chen (Nanyang Technological College), whose speak is about meals dealing with robots.
Dr. Anya Petrovskaya – A Journey by means of Autonomy
Topical Space: Driverless Automobiles and Subject Robots
Bio: Dr. Anna Petrovskaya is a scientist and entrepreneur with many years of expertise within the area of AI, autonomy, and 3D laptop imaginative and prescient. Most not too long ago, Anna constructed a 3D mapping startup that was acquired by Mobileye/Intel, the place she grew to become Head of LiDAR AI. She accomplished her Doctorate diploma in Pc Science at Stanford College in 2011, the place she targeted on Synthetic Intelligence and Robotics. In 2012, her thesis was named among the many winners of the IEEE Clever Transportation Methods Society Finest PhD Thesis Award. Anna was a part of the core workforce that constructed the Stanford autonomous automobile Junior, which was a precursor to the Waymo/Google autonomous automobile. She has served as an Affiliate Editor for Worldwide Convention on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) since 2011. Primarily based on her experience, Anna has been invited to co-author chapters for the Handbook of Clever Automobiles and the 2nd version of the Handbook of Robotics
Prof. I-Ming Chen – Automation of Meals Dealing with: From Merchandise-Choosing to Meals-Choosing
Topical Space: Meals Dealing with Robotics
Bio: I-Ming Chen obtained the B.S. diploma from Nationwide Taiwan College in 1986, and M.S. and Ph.D. levels from California Institute of Know-how, Pasadena, CA in 1989 and 1994 respectively. He’s at present Professor within the College of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering of Nanyang Technological College (NTU) in Singapore, and Editor-in-chief of IEEE/ASME Transactions on Mechatronics. He’s Director of Robotics Analysis Centre in NTU from 2013 to 2017, and can also be a member of the Robotics Activity Power 2014 underneath the Nationwide Analysis Basis which is answerable for Singapore’s strategic R&D plan in future robotics. Professor Chen is Fellow of Singapore Academy of Engineering, Fellow of IEEE and Fellow of ASME, Basic Chairman of 2017 IEEE Worldwide Convention on Robotics and Automation (ICRA 2017) in Singapore. His analysis pursuits are in logistics and development robots, wearable units, human-robot interplay and industrial automation. He’s additionally CEO of Transforma Robotics Pte Ltd growing robots for development trade and CTO of Hand Plus Robotics Pte Ltd growing robotics and AI options for logistics and manufacturing trade.
Daniel Carrillo-Zapata was awared his PhD in swarm robotics on the Bristol Robotics Lab in 2020. He now fosters the tradition of “scientific agitation” to interact in two-way conversations between researchers and society.
