Turing Lecture: Building Dynamic Robots with Boston Dynamics

In conversation with Marc Raibert of Boston Dynamics: 22 Sep 2020 (3 pm BST)

Public opinion of robots has seen a positive turn since the global lockdown. Their use in hospitals, as social distancing assistance and personal companions have given us more reason than ever to welcome them into our lives, our homes and our public services. In this lecture, Professor Sethu Vijayakumar will be speaking with Marc Raibert, the man behind one of the biggest robotics companies in the world, Boston Dynamics.

Join us on the 22 September at 3pm to discuss the latest robots currently being worked on at Boston dynamics, new robots being developed and a chance to see a live demonstration of a robot being operated across continents (Edinburgh to Boston). Q&A session will follow.
