Robotic Discuss Podcast – November & December episodes (+ bonus winter treats)


Episode 24 – Gopal Ramchurn

Claire chatted to Gopal Ramchurn from the College of Southampton about synthetic intelligence, autonomous techniques and renewable power.

Sarvapali (Gopal) Ramchurn is a Professor of Synthetic Intelligence, Turing Fellow, and Fellow of the Establishment of Engineering and Expertise. He’s the Director of the UKRI Reliable Autonomous Methods hub and Co-Director of the Shell-Southampton Centre for Maritime Futures. He’s additionally a Co-CEO of Empati Ltd, an AI startup engaged on decentralised inexperienced hydrogen applied sciences. His analysis is concerning the design of Accountable Synthetic Intelligence for socio-technical functions together with power techniques and catastrophe administration.

Episode 25 – Ferdinando Rodriguez y Baena

Claire chatted to Ferdinando Rodriguez y Baena from Imperial School London about medical robotics, robotic surgical procedure, and translational analysis.

Ferdinando Rodriguez y Baena is Professor of Medical Robotics within the Division of Mechanical Engineering at Imperial School, the place he leads the Mechatronics in Drugs Laboratory and the Utilized Mechanics Division. He has been the Engineering Co-Director of the Hamlyn Centre, which is a part of the Institute of International Well being Innovation, since July 2020. He’s a founding member and nice advocate of the Imperial School Robotics Discussion board, now the primary level of contact for roboticists at Imperial School.

Episode 26 – Séverin Lemaignan

Claire chatted to Séverin Lemaignan from PAL Robotics all about social robots, behaviour, and robot-assisted human-human interactions.

Séverin Lemaignan is Senior Scientist at Barcelona-based PAL Robotics. He leads the Social Intelligence group, in control of designing and creating the socio-cognitive capabilities of robots like PAL TIAGo and PAL ARI. He obtained his PhD in Cognitive Robotics in 2012 from the CNRS/LAAS and the Technical College of Munich, and labored at Bristol Robotics Lab as Affiliate Professor in Social Robotics, earlier than shifting to business. His analysis primarily considerations socio-cognitive human-robot interplay, child-robot interplay and human-in-the-loop machine studying for social robots.

Episode 27 – Simon Wanstall

Claire chatted to Simon Wanstall from the Edinburgh Centre for Robotics all about smooth robotics, robotic prostheses, and taking inspiration from nature.

Simon Wanstall is a PhD scholar on the Edinburgh Centre for Robotics, engaged on developments in smooth robotic prosthetics. His analysis pursuits embrace smooth robotics, bioinspired design and healthcare gadgets. Simon’s present mission is to develop smooth sensors in order that robotic prostheses can really feel the world round them. As a way to develop his expertise on this space, Simon can be enterprise an industrial placement with Touchlab, a robotics firm specialising in sensors.

Episode 28 – Amanda Prorok

Claire chatted to Amanda Prorok from the College of Cambridge all about self-driving vehicles, industrial robots, and multi-robot techniques.
