This podcast is dedicated to the (soft) robotics community and audience who are interested in (soft)robotics technology. We interview guests from both academia and industry where we discuss their latest research besides highlighting the challenges that face robotics in the academic and industrial worlds. Since technology should interact with not only scientists, we are also interviewing philosophers, kids, and laypeople how they feel and think about robotics.
Interesting discussion with Hod Lipson, the head of Creative Machines Lab, Columbia University in New York. In this episode, Can robots be Self-aware? Can robots design other robots and self-repair? Why should we evolve robots to do tasks that animals do so well?
Cutkosky applies analyses, simulations, and experiments to the design and control of robotic hands, tactile sensors, and devices for human/computer interaction. In manufacturing, his work focuses on design tools for rapid prototyping.
Thoughtful discussion with Prof.Metin Sitti about physical intelligence, Wireless soft miniature medical robots actuation, and computation, What are the unavoidable trade-offs in material design? The role of evolutionary methodology for designing responsive materials, how you get disruptive ideas.
In this episode, we spoke about Material And Geometric Nonlinearities To Design Novel Materials. Can we design a simple structure with advanced functionalities? What are the accessible features with nonlinearities and which material's nonlinearities could be accessible?
