Future Robotics Organisation, Waseda University invited Professor Sethu Vijayakumar to present a lecture on Monday 14th November 2022 in Tokyo, Japan.
Talk Title: Robotics and AI for Assisted Living: Shared Autonomy in Action
Abstract: The use of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence to monitor, learn and diagnose help required in settings ranging from care homes, medical rehabilitation centres to smart factories and assisted co-work is at the cusp of real-world translation. Robotics is playing a crucial role in scenarios that goes beyond monitoring and analysis but exploiting physical human-robot interactions to deliver physical change and assistance. Crucial issues still exist about the role of autonomy in such solutions — how we can seamlessly move between shared control and fully autonomous operations. This talk will shed light on progress made in this space and set out a roadmap that the Alan Turing Institute and Edinburgh Centre for Robotics has been following to deliver cutting edge impact.
