SCV Robotics and Automation Chapter
Speaker: James Kuffner, Google Research; and The Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University
Time: Presentation at 7:00 PM
Cost: none
Place: Carnegie Mellong University Silicon Valley, Room 118, Moffett Field
RSVP: not required

One of the grand challenges in artificial intelligence is to create truly “general-purpose” autonomous robots for home, hospital, and office environments.? This talk will discuss some of the challenges of motion autonomy and present an overview of some practical automatic motion planning methods for biped navigation, and object grasping and manipulation.? Experimental results on several humanoid robot platforms around the world will be shown, along with some new efforts in mobile manipulation.? Finally, the long-term prospects for the future development of robot autonomy as it relates to search-based AI and the rise of high-performance cloud computing will be discussed.
