Here’s the summary:

Robots have been steadily moving into industry, research, emergency response and healthcare over the last few decades. In our daily lives, robotic toys, pets and vacuum cleaners, join robotic systems embedded in modern cars and smart buildings.

As the field of Computer Science has progressed over the last few decades, so these robots have become more and more intelligent. These advances in intelligence have brought with them considerable advantages as well as new challenges.

As a part of National Science Week 2015, the Intelligent Robots Group at Curtin University would like to invite you to attend a free public lecture on Intelligent Robotics.

In this lecture, Dr Raymond Sheh from the Intelligent Robots Group will lead us on a journey of Computer Science in Intelligent Robotics, through a series of vignettes that cover the recent past, current state and future challenges of this fascinating area.

The lecture will also cover the current work of the Intelligent Robots Group, including some initiatives that bring the research challenges of Intelligent Robots to high schools and the community.

Hope to see you there!
