IRIM's Spring 2022 Research Showcase

We hope you will join us on Thursday, March 31 from 12:30pm – 5:00 pm EDT, for the annual Georgia Tech Robotics Research Showcase hosted by the Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines (IRIM).  This year’s event will be in person.

By attending this event, you will have the opportunity to interact with talented robotics students enrolled in engineering programs in Mechanical, Electrical & Computer, Aerospace, and Biomedical, as well as students enrolled in Computer Science. The group is a mixture of graduate and undergraduate students nearing graduation, mid-career students looking for internship opportunities, and new students looking to find promising research directions.  Each student will present a research poster, offering you an opportunity to see their work and their scientific process.

If you will attend, please complete a short registration

Agenda Overview

12:30PM   Panel Discussion: The Future of Robotics, and how GT will take us there

1:20PM   Keynote  | Robotic manipulation in logistics:  from research labs to          warehouse automation - Matt Mason, CMU/Berkshire Grey

This talk discusses research in robotic manipulation, and then looks at some of the Berkshire Grey technology and systems.  It discusses some lessons learned from warehouse automation, from the contrast between warehouses and factories, and from the contrast between academia and industry.

Matt Mason is the Chief Scientist at Berkshire Grey, and Professor Emeritus of Robotics and Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University.  He earned the BS, MS, and PhD degrees in Computer Science at the MIT AI Lab.  He was Director of the CMU Robotics Institute from 2004 to 2014.  He is a Fellow of the AAAI, the IEEE, and the ACM.  He won the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society’s Pioneer Award, and the IEEE Technical Field Award in Robotics and Automation.

2:10PM  Panel Discussion  |  Human-Centered Robotics - Karen Feigh, Matthew Gombolay, Charlie Kemp

3:00PM   Poster Session
