Monday, October 24 at 7 PM
Miller Learning Center Room 248

Researchers from a wide array of disciplines will present their work with robotics in a seminar hosted by Ideas for Creative Exploration (ICE), an interdisciplinary initiative for advanced research in the arts at the University of Georgia. This event is free and open to the public.

Dr. David Z. Saltz is the Head of the Department of Theatre and Film Studies, and the Executive Director of ICE. He is a specialist in modern drama, performance theory, the philosophy of art, and directing. His primary research focus has been the interaction between live performance and digital media, including robots.

Dr. Walter D. Potter is a Professor of Computer Science and Director of the Artificial Intelligence Institute. He is a member of the robotics research group, the main focus of which is the development of autonomous mobile robots (AMRs).

Dr. Jason Cantarella is an Associate Professor of Mathematics at UGA. his mathematical interests lie between geometry and topology, including optimal geometry problems such as “What is the shape of a tight knot?” He is also interested in the arts, especially in computer graphics and in sculpture.

Dr. Chi Thai is an Associate Professor of biological and agricultural engineering. His areas of specialty include spectroscopy and spectral imaging for biosystems, computer-mediated learning technologies, and educational humanoid robotics. Additionally, he is a robotics instructor for the UGA-Duke TIP program and directs the Robotics Club at UGA.
