The Road of Robotics Research: Where We Are Now, and Where We Are Headed.

Vivian Shen

When you picture a robot, does the image of a humanoid talking machine pop into your head? When you think about the future, do you see Ex Machina style robots running rampant? Unfortunately that is a misconception due to the movie industry - most robots aren't made to look and act like humans. In this talk, I'll introduce students to some of the major areas of robotics research currently, and then discuss where some of these fields are headed once technology allows.
