Tomorrow the world celebrates Ada Lovelace Day to honor the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths. We’ve specially chosen a couple of online events featuring amazing women in robotics and technology. You can enjoy their talks in the comfort of your own home.
Organized by Ada Lovelace Day, this panel session will be joined by Dr Beth Singler (Junior Research Fellow in Artificial Intelligence at the University of Cambridge), Prof Praminda Caleb-Solly (Professor of Assistive Robotics and Intelligent Health Technologies at the University of the West of England), Dr Anat Caspi (director of the Taskar Center for Accessible Technology, University of Washington) and Dr Chanuki Seresinhe (visiting data science researcher at The Alan Turing Institute). The event will take place at 4pm (UTC). You can register here.
Hosted by UC CITRIS CPAR and Silicon Valley Robotics, this event will be joined by Dr Ayanna Howard (Chair of Interactive Computing Georgia Tech), Dr Carlotta Berry (Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology), Angelique Taylor (PhD Candidate at the Healthcare Robotics Lab in UCSD and Facebook Research Intern), Dr Ariel Anders (First Technical Hire at Robust.ai) and Jasmine Lawrence, (Product Manager at X, the Moonshot Factory). This event will take place at 1am (UTC). You can register here.
Tomorrow we will also publish our 2020 list of women in robotics you need to know about. Stay tuned!
Daniel Carrillo-Zapata was awared his PhD in swarm robotics at the Bristol Robotics Lab in 2020. He now fosters the culture of “scientific agitation” to engage in two-way conversations between researchers and society.
