Shaping Technology for Improved Future Human Life
Monday, March 16
11:00AM - 12:00PM
Hilton Austin Downtown
500 E 4th St
At the core of CMU is the adoption of Integrated Intelligence, seamless interfaces with human AI to improve the lives of people everywhere. In Shaping the Future for Much Better Overall Human life, Manuela Veloso, Ken Goldberg, and Thanassis Rikakis will address four main questions:
How will seamless integration of digital, cyber information, physical artifacts, people and nature improve our world?
While technology developments are driven by curiosity, how will advances in technology lead to a better human functional life?
Given that human life is not only functional in terms of health, emotions, and creativity, how do we see technology advances contribute for an overall better human life?
As we look to the adoption of integrated intelligence, a merging of human and machine intelligence, what role will nature play as an ever important element to our existence?

Manuela Veloso’s long-term research goal is the effective construction of autonomous agents where cognition, perception, and action are combined to address planning, execution, and learning tasks. Her vision is that multiple intelligent robots with different sets of complementary capabilities will provide a seamless synergy of intelligence. Manuela Veloso’s research focuses on the continuous integration of reactive, deliberative planning, and control learning for teams of multiple agents acting in adversarial, dynamic, and uncertain environments. Her multiagent and multirobot research interests have been motivated by and experimented in the domain of robot soccer. Since 2009, she has been investigating indoor mobile, service, companion robots, CoBots, such that robots and humans interact in a symbiotic relationship building upon individual strengths and limitations.Hide the rest
