Data-Centric Engineering: A Robotics-Centric Perspective

12pm-1pm, Wednesday 6th Sept 2023

Data-Centric Engineering: A Robotics-Centric Perspective
Presented by Professor Ian Manchester

Venue: J12 Board Room 124, Computer Science Building

Abstract: This talk will provide both an overview of robotics research at Sydney, as well as some personal perspectives on data-centric engineering. It will discuss some past and on-going research with a data-centric flavour at the Australian Centre for Field Robotics (ACFR) and present the vision of the new Australian Robotic Inspection and Asset Management Hub (ARIAM), which is centred on the concept of a digital twin with robotic systems as mediators between the cyber world and the physical world. Beyond the robotics-centric aspects, the talk will also offer some perspectives on the roles of data, feedback, and models in robust engineered systems more broadly.
