Franco–Scottish Seminar: Robotics

This event has passed

Seminar

The RSE and the French Embassy in London are collaborating in a programme of science events designed to explore and publicly present areas of science in which both Scotland and France have a powerful presence. These events are intended to stimulate Franco–Scottish collaboration in science, present new scientific ideas and their social and commercial implications to the public and increase awareness of French and Scottish science in each other’s country. The 2017 Seminar is on the topic of Robotics.

Please note that the seminar is aimed at academics and practitioners working within the area of Robotics. The Seminar is free to attend.

The Seminar will be followed by an evening public Lecture (6–7.30 pm) delivered by Professor Sethu Vijayakumar FRSE, Professor of Robotics at the University of Edinburgh and Director, Edinburgh Centre for Robotics on the topic of Shared Autonomy: The Future of Interactive Robotics. Seminar participants should register for this Lecture separately – registration for the lecture is available here.
