More than RoboCop and roombas, what are robotics? And will robots really take our jobs? Join us 6th of March to find out.
Did you know the Chinese created the first robot nearly 2,500 years ago? Since then, robotics technology has exploded as engineering, computer science, electronics, and many other fields converged. With artificial intelligence and machine learning, the technology of robots is advancing rapidly? Now we can expect to see self-driving cars on the roads in the next 20 years. Robots already defuse bombs, visit Mars, go to the bottom of the ocean, and clean our floors; what else will they be able to do?
We are pleased to announce our panellists are:
Colin Thomas Manager - Tonsley Manufacturing Innovation Hub, Flinders University
A/Prof Tat-Jun Chin - The University of Adelaide & Chief Investigator, Australian Centre for Robotic Vision
Jo Hugman - Industry 4.0 Team Leader, REDARC Electronics
Please join us on Friday 6th March at the Rob Roy Hotel (106 Halifax Street, Adelaide). This event kicks off at 6:00 pm and will finish by approx. 7:30 pm (doors will be open from 5:30 pm for those who wish to arrive early for seat). The principal goal of SciPubAdelaide is to make science engaging and accessible to the public. Each panel consists of three experts who deliver 10-15 minute presentations on their area and then open up to questions from the audience via a moderator. Panellists are selected primarily on their ability to effectively communicate science in an engaging and non-technical manner. SciPubAdelaide is held in a pub so that scientists, aspiring scientists, and non-scientists can learn, discuss and think critically about hot topics in science.
Please note: Though Eventbrite issues automated tickets, we do not check or collect tickets at the venue. RSVPing does not guarantee a seat; the RSVP facility makes it easier for us to estimate numbers so that we can accommodate accordingly. Doors are open from 5:30pm and due to the popularity of some past events, we would advise patrons to arrive early to avoid any disappointment. Thank you for your support.
We will be delighted to see you there!
