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.

There is something magical about seeing 1,000 robots move, when humans are not operating any of them. In a new study published in Science, researchers have achieved just that. This swarm of 1,000 robots can assemble themselves into complex shapes without the need for a central brain or a human controller.

ShakeysA large crowd of experts in artificial intelligence gathered around the AAAI Video Competition Award Ceremony before catching their flights, or enjoying one last night in Québec City. The competition aims to spread the word about research and applications in AI through exciting educational videos. For this eighth edition, co-chaired by Mauro Birattari and me, 22 videos were submitted, 14 were accepted, and 5 received awards based on peer review. Videos of researchers singing Michael Jackson’s Thriller, robot dogs, neural networks, telepresence robots for the disabled, and insight into HRI had the crowd laughing and cheering.
