AI Research Strengths in Robotics

27 April 2023

Associate Professor Pauline Pounds, Associate Professor Jen Jen Chung, and Professor Janet Wiles want to make robots more useful and accessible so that everyone in society can benefit from the promise these new technologies provide. Their research explores how to make robotics and their assistive technologies more accessible in everyday environments, noting that the impact made in industrial environments hasn't yet extended into other areas such as health care and the home. They are also exploring the ways in which people may wish to engage with robotics, and the AI behind them, both in Australia and around the world. 

"The more our robots can do, and the more people can work with them, the better off everyone will be," says A/Prof Pounds.
