Audrow is the Podcast Director for Robohub, an NSF Fellow, and a Master's student in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Michigan. He is part of Dr. C. David Remy's Robotics and Motion Laboratory (RAM-Lab), which develops legged robots and assistive robotic devices such as active prostheses and exoskeletons.





In this episode, Audrow Nash and Christina Brester conduct interviews at the 2016 International Association of Science Parks and Areas of Innovation conference in Moscow, Russia. They speak with Albert Efimov, Chief Roboticist at Skolkovo, about creating an innovation cluster for robotics companies; Anastasia Uryasheva, CEO of Tsuru, about a waterproof unmanned aerial vehicle; and Borris Rozman, General Director of GNOM, about underwater vehicles.

This is the first of three interviews from the conference.

The 2016 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS) took place in October, in Daejeon, Korea. IROS is an annual robotics conference that seeks to “explore the frontier of science and technology in intelligent robots and smart machines, and to stimulate innovative ideas, exchange technological perspectives and assess future directions in the field of intelligent robots and smart machines with a view to promote progress and prosperity for all nations.”

In this episode, Audrow Nash interviews Domenico Prattichizzo, Professor of Robotics at the University of Siena and Senior Scientist at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia in Genova in Italy, about a device for assisting people who have lost the use of one of their hands, for example by a stroke. The device is an extra finger that functions to press an object into the paralyzed hand so that it can be grasped.

wetlab

In this episode, Audrow Nash interviews Dieter Fox, Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington, about the 100/100 Computer Vision Tracking Challenge. This is a self-imposed challenge to understand 100% of the pixels in an image 100% of the time in video footage; this includes understanding semantic information. Such understanding would allow robots to assist humans more naturally in environments like a home kitchen, wet lab, or in disaster response. To accomplish this challenge, Fox discusses challenges which include modeling, tracking, and detecting articulated objects.

ori-2-bedroom-bed-in-1000x667
In this episode, Audrow Nash interviews Hasier Larrea, Founder and CEO of Ori Systems and MSc candidate at the MIT Media Lab, about robotics used to transform personal spaces. Larrea discusses how the world is urbanizing and how new space paradigms are needed to accommodate this shift. He proposes robotic furniture that allows for what is not being used to be hidden, such as a desk or a bed. Larrea discusses the robotic systems, how these systems will be integrated into existing infrastructure, and the future or Ori Systems.
