Examining the Slow, Noisy, and Complex Process of Technology Adoption
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-03-31)
The Confluence of Robotics and Automation for Next Generation Manufacturing
In this presentation we will discuss how hard automation in many cases is getting replaced by flexible automation. The ideal factory is no longer a sequence of fixed processing stations, but a swarm of heterogenous stationary ...
Turning Assistive Machines into Assistive Robots
For decades, the potential for automation—in particular, in the form of smart wheelchairs—to aid those with motor or cognitive impairments, has been recognized. It is a paradox that often the more severe a person's motor ...
The Robotic Scientist: Automating Discovery, from Cognitive Robotics to Computational Biology
Can robots discover scientific laws automatically? Despite the prevalence of computing power, the process of finding natural laws and their corresponding equations has resisted automation. This talk will outline a series ...
Robotic Manipulation: A Broadening View
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2019-02-20)
Professor Mason discusses a rambling mashup of topics in robotic manipulation, manipulation by apes and humans, early research on manipulation in the blocks world, more recent research motivated by e-commerce and logistics, ...
