Sabine Hauert is Lecturer at the Bristol Robotics Laboratory and University of Bristol where she designs swarms of nanobots for biomedical applications. Swarm strategies are either inspired from nature or are automatically designed in simulation using machine learning and crowdsourcing. Before joining the University of Bristol, Sabine was a Human Frontier Science Program Cross-Disciplinary Fellow in the Laboratory of Sangeeta Bhatia at the Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research at MIT where she designed cooperative nanoparticles for cancer treatment. Her passion for swarm engineering started in 2006 as a PhD student at EPFL- Switzerland making swarms of flying robots for rescue operations. Passionate about science communication, Sabine is the Co-founder and President of the Robots Association, Co-founder of the ROBOTS Podcast (http://robotspodcast.com) and Robohub (http://robohub.org), as well as Media Editor for the journal Autonomous Robots.

3y_900x500Robohub turns three today, and what a year it’s been! Just last month we got our 7000th twitter follower, saw a viral post garner over 18K page views, and launched two new video series (here and here). All this momentum is no doubt thanks to the many, many incredible volunteers who dedicate their time and energy to contributing content and making Robohub happen. Earlier this year our co-founder Sabine Hauert was invited to contribute a commentary in Nature about why good science communication is so important to robotics and AI. We’ve elaborated on that article below.
