  • Fairmont hotel A917 Scotland, KY16 8PY United Kingdom (map)

Come and discover why Scotland is the innovation capital of the world with VisitScotland’s new free talk series. This February in St. Andrews we invite you to step into the future and discover INNOVATEROBOTICS.

INNOVATEROBOTICS explores Scotland's world leading Robotics sector, the future of research and new advancements in robotic capabilities, the incredible deployment of robots to understand our marine environment, and tackles the big questions of how we can live and work together, robots and humans. An evening for academics, industry and students and anyone with an interest in the many closely related fields in computer science.

Scotland is a Robotics hub, leads the world in deep sea exploration, works alongside NASA in developing Mars mission robots, and might be home to Europe’s first space port. Can you afford to miss out?

Look who’s talking:

We will be joined by Dr Kasim Tersic, teaching fellow at the University of St Andrews for a discussion of computer vision, from low-level features to high-level reasoning and understanding, biologically Inspired Detection and object and shape recognition - areas of research fundamental to Robotics and their development into machines that work with humans.
Taking the discussion forwards, and helping us explore the world of robots in marine research will be Dr Phillip Anderson from the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS). Dr Anderson will share with us the latest from his work with autonomous remote systems, unmanned robots at the forefront of marine research, linking up air and waterborne data gathering.


Registration is FREE and includes a drinks reception after the talks to take the conversation further. Your colleagues and friends are welcome to join you so please share this invitation.
