Webinar with Pr. Julie A Shah - MIT
- May 26, 2021, 10:35 a.m.
Julie received her SB (2004) and SM (2006) from the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT, and her PhD (2010) in Autonomous Systems from MIT. Before joining the faculty, she worked at Boeing Research and Technology on robotics applications for aerospace manufacturing. She has developed innovative methods for enabling fluid human-robot teamwork in time-critical, safety-critical domains, ranging from manufacturing to surgery to space exploration. Her group draws on expertise in artificial intelligence, human factors, and systems engineering to develop interactive robots that emulate the qualities of effective human team members to improve the efficiency of human-robot teamwork. In 2014, Shah was recognized with an NSF CAREER award for her work on “Human-aware Autonomy for Team-oriented Environments," and by the MIT Technology Review TR35 list as one of the world’s top innovators under the age of 35. Her work on industrial human-robot collaboration was also recognized by the Technology Review as one of the 10 Breakthrough Technologies of 2013, and she has received international recognition in the form of best paper awards and nominations from the International Conference on Automated Planning and Scheduling, the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, the IEEE/ACM International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction, the International Symposium on Robotics, and the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society. She is also the co-author of the book «what to expect when expecting robots»! The book What to expect when you’re expecting robots, dives in the details of what considerations robot designers should take into account to create machines that not only works for humans but with humans. It also highlights the conversations we, as a society, need to have around the future of robots in our public and private environments. https://interactive.mit.edu/about/peo... https://interactive.mit.edu/ https://www.amazon.ca/-/fr/Laura-Majo... https://womeninrobotics.org/ https://corom.ca/fr/ Contact - [email protected]
