dc.descriptionHadas Kress-Gazit is the Geoffrey S.M. Hedrick Sr. Professor at the Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Cornell University. She received her Ph.D. in Electrical and Systems Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania in 2008 and has been at Cornell since 2009. Her research focuses on formal methods for robotics and automation and more specifically on synthesis for robotics – automatically creating verifiable robot controllers for complex high-level tasks. Her group explores different types of robotic systems including modular robots, soft robots and swarms and synthesizes (pun intended) ideas from different communities such as robotics, formal methods, control, hybrid systems and computational linguistics. She is an IEEE fellow and has received multiple awards for her research, teaching and advocacy for groups traditionally underrepresented in STEM. She lives in Ithaca with her partner and two kids.en_US

dc.description.abstractIn this talk I will describe how formal methods such as synthesis – automatically creating a system from a formal specification – can be leveraged to design robots, guarantee their behavior, and provide feedback about things that might go wrong. I will discuss the benefits and challenges of synthesis techniques and will give examples of different robotic systems including modular robots, swarms, and robots interacting with people.en_US
