Combining engineering, design and computer science; a nation’s showcase

The robotics sector and how robots might work alongside humans in the future will be explored as part of VisitScotland’s ‘InnovateTheNation’ series of events.

“Scotland is a robotics hub, leads the world in deep sea exploration, works alongside NASA in developing Mars mission robots and might be home to Europes first space port,” said a spokesman. “Can you afford to miss out?”

The InnovateRobotics event will be held at the Fairmount St Andrews on 16 February. It will look at the future of computer-human interactiona and the opportunities for unmanned research in the natural environment.

InnovateTheNation is a diverse series of talks representing areas of excellence and innovation in Scotland within the Scottish Government’s growth sectors.

“[They] bring together experts, influencers and the next generation of innovators in a series of engaging talks throughout the country.”

The robotics event will highlight the combination of engineering, design and computer science. Among the speakers will be Dr Kasim Tersic, teaching fellow at the University of St Andrews, and Dr Phillip Anderson from the Scottish Association for Marine Science.
