BiR-IROS

The 2020 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS) has teamed up with Black in Robotics (website, Twitter) to release a new special series named BiR-IROS: Black in Robotics with the support of Toyota Research Institute. This series consists of three short but powerful videos of roboticists giving personal examples of why diversity matters in robotics, showcasing their research and explaining what got them into robotics.

BiR-IROS: Black in Robotics is available for free through the OnDemand platform until 25 November (located under Technical Talks or at this link). Here’s a list of all the speakers and organisations who took part in the videos:

  • Ariel Anders – Roboticist at Robust.AI
  • Allison Okamura – Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University
  • Alivia Blount – Data Scientist
  • Anthony Jules – Co-founder and COO at Robust.AI
  • Andra Keay – Robotics Industry Futurist, Managing Director of Silicon Valley Robotics and Core Team Member of Robohub
  • Carlotta A. Berry – Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology
  • Donna Auguste – Entrepreneur and Data Scientist
