The Robots of The Bristol Robotics Laboratory

a generic robotThere’s an interesting sounding free talk coming up later this week on 10th January.

Professor Alan Winfield, the Director of UWE‘s Science Communication Unit will be giving an introduction to the work of the Bristol Robotics Laboratory entitled “The Robots of The Bristol Robotics Laboratory”.

The work of the Bristol Robotics Laboratory (BRL) covers three broad areas: biological robotics, humanoid robotics and swarm robotics. However, unifying themes are that of intelligent autonomy and robot safety and dependability. The laboratory’s work is highly multi-disciplinary and collaborative, with strong crossover between robotics and life-sciences. This talk presents an overview of the research work of the BRL, covering the three areas.

The talk will be held in the Tyndall Lecture Theatre, University of Bristol (map) and starts at 7.30 pm.

Entry is free, but tickets will need to be booked by emailing or telephoning 0117 922 3571.

Update 9/01/13: The day after this report was posted, places for the talk had all gone and a waiting list system implemented to reallocate any cancelled tickets.
