By the end of July, we were honoured to host prof. Ruzena Bajcsy, a Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Berkeley. Her current research is focused on the use of robotic technology, especially measuring and extracting noninvasively kinematic and dynamic parameters of individual in order to assess their physical movement capabilities or limitations. Prof. Bajcsy received the ACM/Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence Allen Newell Award, and was named as one of the 50 most important women in science in the November 2002 issue of Discover Magazine. She is also the recipient of the Benjamin Franklin Medal for Computer and Cognitive Sciences (2009) and the IEEE Robotics and Automation Award (2013) for her contributions in the field of robotics and automation.
Before her inspiring lecture, her student Laura Hallock provided us with the results of her past research focused on systematic modeling framework for deformation-based muscle force inference.
Both presentations were realized thanks to the cooperation between Slovak University of Technology, University of Zilina and Eset Science Academy Award.
Thank you for your abundant participation!
