What we're about

https://a248.e.akamai.net/secure.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/d/e/7/b/600_456176955.jpeg

We are a group VERY excited by the potential of AI/ML, particularly as it applies to robotics and IoT. If you share this excitement, join us on an amazing journey every Saturday 9:00 am to 1:00 pm (and usually extending to 3 or 4 pm as time flies when you're having fun), as we explore and learn the theories, methodologies, and frameworks of AI/ML, investigate the social impacts of such a disruptive technology, while also applying the technology to ongoing robotics and IoT projects in association with our sister meetup, Houston Robotics Club (https://www.meetup.com/HoustonRoboticsClub/). Hey!... can't beat that! The synergy between the two groups is amazing!

We also highly recommend that you join the Houston Machine Learning (https://www.meetup.com/Machine-Learning-Home/) meetup which meets once or twice per month at 2:00 pm on Saturdays at the Engineering Building 2-Cullen College of Engineering on the University of Houston campus.

Among other topics, our AI/ML for Robotics and IoT group will discuss the robotic and IoT application of the topics discussed in the most recent Houston Machine Learning meetups. It will be a great way to reinforce and see practical application of what you learn there.

Sooooo, CONGRATULATIONS! You are living in VERY exciting times. You are now witnessing the rise and convergence of technologies that will each transform the world just as completely and intensely as did the Internet. AR/VR/MR, genetic/bio engineering, IoT, materials sciences, nanotechnology, photorealistic gaming/simulation, quantum computing, robotics (including automation and self-driving cars)... the list goes on and on... are all advancing at breakneck speed. And while their impacts may not yet be clearly apparent, rest assured they will each impact the world to a degree on par with that of the Internet.

Included in that list of world-changing technologies, of course, is artificial intelligence (AI) and its machine learning (ML) component. AI/ML will impact all aspects of our lives by improving the speed, quality, and cost of available goods and services, accelerating scientific discovery and technological advance, improving healthcare, and, via self-driving vehicles, reduce accidents while improving travel opportunities for those in some way driving-impaired. These are just a few examples of how AI/ML will impact our lives.

Please, come join us as we have fun learning about and participating in the progression of the exciting world of artificial intelligence and machine learning for robotics and IoT!

ROS 2 - Autonomous Platforms

Online event

This series will start with an introduction to ROS 2 and hands-on Python ROS 2 programming deep dive based on the UW Open-Source MusHr.io reference project. Our end goal is to convert MushR's ROS 1 code to a fully operation ROS 2 operating stack. UPDATE: After our initial walk thru of the ROS2 tutorial we are moving towards an intro to the Navigation stack & gazebo based Simulation in ROS 2 using TurtleBot 3 as an initial demo. Hope to see yall only Sunday. But meanwhile check out our new public repo and don't hesitate in jumping in and contribute your C++ Python ROS contributions.
