We are delighted to have Professor Sethu Vijayakumar, from the University of Edinburgh, delivering the third in a series of annual public lectures at this evening event.

The next generation of robots are going to work much more closely with humans, other robots and interact significantly with the environment around it. This talk will introduce powerful machine learning technologies that are enabling us to reap the benefits of increased autonomy while still feeling securely in control.
