On this new launch of our collection showcasing the plenary and keynote talks from the IEEE/RSJ IROS2020 (Worldwide Convention on Clever Robots and Techniques) you’ll meet Dr. Anya Petrovskaya (Stanford College), speaking about driverless autos and subject 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 Discipline Robots
Bio: Dr. Anna Petrovskaya is a scientist and entrepreneur with a long time of expertise within the subject 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 turned Head of LiDAR AI. She accomplished her Doctorate diploma in Laptop 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 Techniques Society Greatest PhD Thesis Award. Anna was a part of the core crew 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. Based mostly 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-Selecting to Meals-Selecting
Topical Space: Meals Dealing with Robotics
Bio: I-Ming Chen acquired 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 presently 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 be a member of the Robotics Job Drive 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, Normal Chairman of 2017 IEEE Worldwide Convention on Robotics and Automation (ICRA 2017) in Singapore. His analysis pursuits are in logistics and building robots, wearable gadgets, human-robot interplay and industrial automation. He’s additionally CEO of Transforma Robotics Pte Ltd creating robots for building business and CTO of Hand Plus Robotics Pte Ltd creating robotics and AI options for logistics and manufacturing business.
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 have interaction in two-way conversations between researchers and society.
