The Robotics Global Colloquia is a new series of online live events featuring speakers from academia and industry. The series, organized by the International Foundation of Robotics Research (IFRR), is conceived to provide a platform for open discussion and interaction on diverse themes in robotics - from research and applications to the field’s social impact and its ethical issues. The series’ goal is to engage both scientific and public communities across the globe in current issues and developments, with a format alternating between panels on broad themes and speakers on specific topics.
The colloquia are bi-weekly events, scheduled every other Thursday. Times of the colloquia depend on the region where the event is hosted.
This first colloquium was a panel on surgical robotics, and was held on June 18, 2020.
The second colloquium featured a talk on creative design by Shigeo Hirose, and was held on July 2, 2020.
The third colloquium was a panel on field robotics, and was be held on July 16, 2020.
The fourth colloquium featured a talk on swarm of small flying robots by Vijay Kumar, and was held on July 30, 2020.
The fifth colloquium was a panel on physics-models and data-driven learning in robotics, and was held on August 13, 2020.
The next colloquium will be a panel on cognitive robotics and will be held on October 8, 2020.
