The Future of Humans and Machines


21st century robots are just as likely to be hovering in the air, living in your home, or swimming through someone’s bloodstream, as working in an automotive factory. That’s why Purdue researchers pursue robotics on all fronts: manufacturing, biomedicine, design, nanotechnology, and more. From large scale automation, such as in manufacturing; to microrobots moving individual cells; every aspect of robotics is explored at Purdue. Especially important is human-machine interaction. People are interacting with computers in new and exciting ways, from augmented reality to autonomous vehicles. Purdue researchers are working hard to perfect these technologies, so that people from every background can utilize the newest technology in the most productive way. Machines also impact human comfort and perception. Understanding how humans and machines interact makes for better machines and better people! In this panel session, Purdue researchers will discuss the future of humans and machines with the PEDLS speaker Prof. Daniela Rus from MIT.
