Looking to understand how leading companies have strategized and implemented Robotics & AI technologies in a way that significantly impacts their business operations? Then join us at The 2019 MIT Robo-AI Exchange for a great opportunity to hear from 15+ senior leaders from companies including IBM, Accenture Technology Labs, Syngenta, Vecna Robotics, Woodside Energy, Amazon, BAE Systems, AntWorks and others, as well as network with 250 students, faculty and industry professionals. The 2019 MIT Robo-AI Exchange is the first student-run conference to promote the exchange of ideas and experiences around successful business implementation of Robotics and AI technologies. The conference will bring together business leaders from across a number of industries to share specific cases, strategies, and outcomes related to their adoption of Robotics and AI. In doing so, the event attracts business executives, corporate strategists, product and project managers, university students, entrepreneurs, technologists and academics to learn from our world-class keynote speakers and panelists, and of course, one another. Most companies know that robotics and artificial intelligence are incredibly valuable, but do not know how to capitalize on them. Our exchange provides a platform to: *Learn how others use frontier technology to solve problems and create new services. *Network with high quality speakers and industry leaders. *Connect to Robotics and AI experts from inside and outside the MIT community. *Interact with talented and motivated students looking to make an impact. ============================================================ Early bird tickets are now on sale: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2019-mit-robo-ai-exchange-tickets-54354985224 Information on speakers, agenda, tickets and more can be found at https://robo-ai.org ============================================================

Suppose you have thousands of identical, small robots, each communicating with peers by some means, perhaps global, perhaps regional. How do you coordinate them to achieve a common goal without having a Master? See: http://bilge.pyrate.m... (http://bilge.pyrate.mailbolt.com/FRC/DistributedControlForRoboticSwarmsUsingVoronoiTesselations--ShelleyRoundsThesis.pdf) and http://bilge.pyrate.m... (http://bilge.pyrate.mailbolt.com/FRC/MotionControlWithDistributedInformation--MartinezCortesBullo.pdf) and http://bilge.pyrate.m... (http://bilge.pyrate.mailbolt.com/FRC/CoverageControlForMobileSensingNetworks-CortesMartinezKaratasBullo.pdf) I don't pretend to know all these, even if I understand some of the principles. But I thought learning this stuff together might be fun, and be an impetus to actually reading and mastering these.
