CMU’s Matt Johnson-Roberson and MIT’s Daniela Rus will talk higher-education at TC Sessions: Robotics –

Robotics, now a $ 45.5 billion global market, has had a significant impact on countless industries, including agtech, automotive, healthcare, labor, warehousing and logistics. Thanks to the advancement of AI, IoT and mobile technology – especially for sensors and computer vision – independent mobile robots (AMRs) will open the door to widespread use cases and market forecasts of $ 120.3 billion by 2026.

While the future of robotics may seem daunting, the direction it will take will ultimately be determined by the next generation of roboticists – and scientists who develop and encourage their research and ideas.

That is why I am delighted to have Matthew Johnson-Roberson, director of the Institute of Robotics at Carnegie Mellon University and a professor at the School of Computer Science, and Daniela Rus, director of MIT’s Computer Science and Laboratory Intelligence (CSAIL) and a professor of engineering. Electrical and Computer Science, will join us on stage TC Sessions: Robotics 2022 July 22, in Boston, Massachusetts.

We will touch on their ongoing research, the development of robotics and the role that colleges and universities play in accelerating the next generation of robotics. Both guests come to the stage with in-depth knowledge, experience and robotics and their ability to unlock human potential.

Carnegie Mellon, Johnson-Roberson focuses on developing robotic systems capable of operating in a complex, dynamic environment. He believes that the theory of robotics makes it possible to develop new workplaces in the robot.

Prior to taking on his current role, Johnson-Roberson was Assistant Professor of Engineering in the Department of Marine Design & Marine Engineering and Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Michigan. He was the director of the University of Ford Center for Autonomous Vehicles (FCAV), and founded and led the DROP (Deep Robot Optical Perception) Lab, which investigates 3D reconstruction, distribution, data mining and visualization. It also brings in a beginner experience as the founder of Refraction AI.

Daniela Rus is the CSAIL Director of MIT where she also serves as Vice President of Research at the Schwarzman College of Computing and Director of the Toyota-CSAIL Joint Research Center. Rus research interests include robotics, artificial intelligence and data science.

She estimates that the next 60 years will see robots move from industry to a central human environment to help with physical activities – to the point where robots become a part of human life like modern technology. of today.

Prior to her role at MIT, Rus – a 2002 MacArthur Fellow, a Fellow of ACM, AAAI and IEEE and a member of the National Academy of Engineering and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences – was a professor in the Department of Computer Science at Dartmouth College.
