DustinLi_0Guest talk in the ShanghAI Lectures, 2011-12-01

In this guest lecture, Dustin Li from the Northwestern Polytechnical University in Xian, China, talks about the design of a robot that autonomously delivers items in an office building.

Xiaoan (Dustin) Li received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in Computer Information Engineering in 1987, Control Theory and Application in 1990, and Ph.D. degree in Computer Application Technology in 2000, respectively, all from the department of computer, Northwestern Polytechnical University, Xi’an city, China. Since 1997 he has been an associate professor. From May 2008 to May 2009, he was a visiting scholar in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the Michigan State University. Dr. Li is the founder of the Soccer Robot team in Northwestern Polytechnical University, and the chief advisor from 2003 to 2009. His research interests include computational intelligence, learning and cooperation of multi-agent robot system, the real-time intelligent control.


The ShanghAI Lectures are a videoconference-based lecture series on Embodied Intelligence, run and organized by Rolf Pfeifer (from 2009 till 2012), Fabio Bonsignorio (since 2013), and me with partners around the world.

The ShanghAI Lectures have brought us a treasure trove of guest lectures by experts in robotics. You can find the whole series from 2012 here. Now, we’re bringing you the guest lectures you haven’t yet seen from previous years, starting with the first lectures from 2009 and releasing a new guest lecture every Thursday until all the series are complete. Enjoy!
