Interview with Danica Kragic

Danica-Kragic-Interview-with-the-International-Journal-of-Advanced-Robotic-Systems---YouTubeIn this wide ranging interview, Danica Kragic, professor at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Sweden, and General Chair of ICRA 2016, discusses the nature of collaborative research, shares her opinions on the robotics projects financed by Horizon2020, speculates on the reasons behind the different research agendas for robotics in the US, the EU and in Asia, and tells us why she chooses to publish her team’s research in open access publications.

Kragic underlines the importance of good organisation when it comes to promoting interdisciplinarity among scientific fields, and incentives to attract students in taking up robotics, and shares her views on why robotics is so often negatively portrayed in the media. Finally, will robots be as intelligent as humans? Watch the latest IJARS video to find out.
