RI40: Past, Present, and Future

Please plan to join us on Friday, October 25, 2019 as we celebrate 40 years of people, robots, and innovation!

40 years ago Carnegie Mellon University’s Robotics Institute opened its doors with the dream of ushering in a new age of thinking robots. During the ensuing decades, we have experienced many research successes in intelligent manufacturing, autonomous vehicles, space-related robots, medical robotics, nano-machines, computer vision and graphics and anthropomorphic robots.

In 1979, Carnegie Mellon Professors Raj Reddy and Angel Jordan and Westinghouse Electric Corp. President Tom Murrin agreed to open the Robotics Institute with the goal of making it the best place on the planet to do robotics research.

Our agenda will include talks, a special RI Seminar with Red Whittaker, demos and a reception.
