When: Fri 8th December 2017
Where: The Great Hall

Are robots really going to take over the world? Will robots be able to replace humans? What does it mean to be human? Take a journey through the weird and wonderful world of robotics. You will discover the challenges and possibilities facing today's engineers and scientists with the quest of creating the man's new best friend (or will they be our enemies?)

Humans aren’t the only ones who enjoy a good game. Robots are starting to benefit from them too.

Talking at the New Scientist LIve 2017 Event, Simon will explain the synergy between robotics and games, in particular how games can be used to facilitate the evolution of complex and useful behaviour, both in virtual worlds and on physical robots, including autonomous vehicles. Games have the advantage of providing ideal test-beds for new learning algorithms, and enable fast simulations that can be easily parallelised.

When: Fri 8th September 2017
Where: Mile End Art Pavilion

Inter/sections is a week-long, annual event organised by the students in the Media and Arts Technology Centre for Doctoral Training at Queen Mary University of London. Inter/sections 2017 is taking place from 3-8 September, at the Mile End Art Pavilion in East London.

CATEGORY: Students

When: Thu 29th June 2017

Participants are a collective of Final Year interdisciplinary Designers, Innovators, Scientists and Engineering students. With the aim of bridging the Art, Science & Engineering divide. The exhibition will showcase extensive final year work in the fields of product, medical, surface and wearable design innovation. This is not only the output of an entire year of work but also demonstrates the culmination of the previous 3 or 4 years of study towards a BEng or MEng degree.
