Science Public Lecture: User-centred Design of Robots and Interfaces

User centred design of robots and interfaces

Thursday 19th September, Physics Building, University Campus, University of Nottingham

Dr Nikhil Deshpande, Associate Professor in Robotics and AI, Faculty of Science

The interaction between humans and AI technology has markedly increased in recent years, and is set to become commonplace. Particularly when it comes to AI and Robotics, human factors must play a central role in the development of these technologies.

In this lecture, Dr. Deshpande will pitch three areas of research he worked on over his career: telesurgery, teleoperation, and mixed reality training. He will give an insight into the hows, whys, and where tos for each area finally bringing them together through the common theme that runs through his research, keeping the human user at the centre of the development of the technologies.

This lecture is part of our monthly science public lecture series. These events showcase research from scientists at the University of Nottingham and are free and open to all!
