#AskRobotics with Matthew Howard

From cyborg assassins to driverless cars, robots continue to capture the public’s imagination, inspiring apprehension and wonder in equal measure. Will the rise of machines threaten the human race? Are they truly capable of emotional intelligence? Will they put us all out of work? And more importantly, can they do the washing up? Dr Matthew…

IEEE Student Branch Event at King’s

The IEEE Student Branch at King’s College was founded in 2001 and reshaped in 2012 as a more active branch. To celebrate the new academic year and welcome new students as well as get reacquainted with senior students, we are planning a social event on Tuesday 11th of November 6pm. Date: Tuesday 11th November, 18:00 Venue: Room K0.20, Strand Campus, King’s College…

Feeding Robot supported by King’s CoRe

Last Supper is a durational and interactive performance piece in which the artist wears a costume made of recycled machinery, such as, computers/printers as well as cooking utensils (an electric knife, ladle and spoon). anti-cool made the costume called “The Feeding Robot” using applied robotics technology. This allowed it to become interactive and controlled by…

East London Science School visit CoRe labs

We were very excited to show how we do robotics experiments and how we make simple robots to students from the East London Science School. Hope their determination to lead scientific careers further solidified. It was very encouraging to see the depth of their questions. One child asked – “how do you get ideas to…

The 2015 Innovative Surgical Robotics Forum – 18 March 2015

This event is for any healthcare professional, academic or company interested in discussing the challenges, current barriers and ways to move forward in the arena of surgical robots. The global market for medical robotics and computer-assisted surgical (MRCAS) equipment was worth nearly $2.7 billion in 2013. The market is projected to approach $3.3 billion in…

ICRA 2014 Workshop on Soft and Stiffness-controllable Robots for MIS

This workshop aims to bring together medical experts active in the field of minimally invasive surgery and roboticists creating and studying soft and stiffness controllable robot devices. We will explore the synergies that will arise from robotic surgeons cooperating with such modern robots to conduct advanced surgical interventions previously not possible. This ICRA 2014 workshop…
