AI_evolution_dataRobohub is excited to bring you our newest series – the Talking Machines podcast. Hosted by Katherine Gorman and Ryan Adams, Talking Machines is your window into the world of machine learning. You can catch new episodes every two weeks on Thursdays.

In the first episode of Talking Machines we meet our hosts, Katherine Gorman (nerd, journalist) and Ryan Adams (nerd, Harvard computer science professor), and explore some of the interviews you’ll be able to hear this season. Today we hear some short clips on big issues, we’ll get technical, but today is all about introductions.

In this pair of video lectures, Robert Riener presents his team’s research efforts in the field of rehabilitation robotics, and describes the vision behind Cybathlon, the competition for robot-assisted parathletes.

In this interview, Peter Corke gives us a retrospective on the differences between the field of robotics now and when he just started his career 30 years ago, pointing out what strikes him as the most important milestones in robotics in the past 10 years. He goes on to share his view on the role of editorship, and the difference between robotics research papers and articles published in a robotics magazine, as well as his perspective on traditional publishing vs open access publishing.

Earlier this year, the Robots Podcast team came across a story about two 17 year old twin sisters who started their own robotics outreach group. The story about the Tipperman sisters got us curious. What kind of robotics outreach activities are out there to inspire children? Do any of these activities make a difference in getting more girls interested in robotics?
