Biomimetic robots as neuroscientific models and therapeutic tools -Tony Prescott, Director of Sheffield Robotics

Date: 
Wednesday, March 27, 2019 | 4:00pm - 5:30pm
Location: 
ICCSX836

Abstract

Biomimetics is the approach of abstracting princi
ples from nature to assist in the understanding of living systems and the
design of novel technologies. At Sheffield Robotics we are using a biomime
tic approach to develop robots with brain-like control systems and we are
applying this approach to both humanoid robots, such as the European iCub
, and to new animal-like robots.

A tutorial on quasi-Borel spaces - Ohad Kammar (University of Edinburgh)

Date: 
Friday, March 22, 2019 | 2:00pm - 3:00pm
Location: 
ICCS246

Title: A tutorial on quasi-Borel spaces

Abstract:

We have used Quasi-Borel spaces, a new mathematical structure, as a foundations of probabilistic programming and higher-order statistics. In this informal talk, I will introduce this alternative to traditional measure theory. We will cover the basic definition, and the constructions relevant tomodelling and verification.  

Short Bio:

UBC Computer Science Undergaduate Wongelawit Teka Zewde Featured in AWiB article

Wongelawit Teka Zewde is currently in her last year at the UBC studying Mathematical Science (Computer Science, Math and Statistics combined). Having the opportunity to study at UBC on a full scholarship and completing her co-op at SAP as a software developer has allowed her to explore her interest in technology and entrepreneurship. She was introduced to the industry in first year when she took CPSC 100 (Computational Thinking) by Prof. Rachel Pottinger who inspired and motivated her to take more computer science courses.
