Professor Brian Scassellati has been invited as one of the keynote speakers at the 19th “Towards Autonomous Robotic Systems” (TAROS) Conference on July 25 - 27, 2018 hosted by the Bristol Robotics Laboratory at the University of the West of England. He will present his talk “Robots that teach,” which reviews some of the reasons why physical robots rather than virtual agents are essential to socially assistive robotics, highlighting some of the major research issues within this area, and describing some recent results deploying robots into clinics, classrooms, and homes.
TAROS is the longest running UK-hosted international conference on Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS), which is aimed at the presentation and discussion of the latest results and methods in autonomous robotics research and applications. TAROS offers a friendly environment for robotics researchers and industry to take stock and plan future progress. It welcomes senior researchers and research students alike, and specifically provides opportunities for research students and young research scientists to present their work to the scientific community.
