Turing Lecture: Building dynamic robots
You can find more information about this event on our website: turing.ac.uk/events/turing-lecture-building-dynamic-robots

Boston Dynamics makes some of the world's most advanced robots, including Spot, BigDog, Atlas, and Handle. Robots that move dynamically travel where other robots can't go, handle larger payloads with smaller footprints and smaller robot mass, and move faster to get work done more quickly. Marc Raibert will give a status report on the robots being developed at Boston Dynamics, including those focused on commercial application today and tomorrow and R&D robots that can lead to the robots of our dreams.

Marc Raibert is Founder and Chairman of Boston Dynamics, a company that creates some of the world’s most advanced dynamic robots, such as BigDog, Atlas, Spot and Handle. These robots are inspired by the remarkable ability of animals to move with agility, dexterity, perception and intelligence. A key ingredient of these robots is their dynamic behavior, which contributes to their effectiveness and versatility in the real world. Before starting Boston Dynamics, Raibert was Professor of Computer Science and Robotics at MIT and Carnegie Mellon. While at CMU and MIT Raibert founded the Leg Laboratory, a lab that helped establish the scientific basis for highly dynamic robots and that set the stage for the work done at Boston Dynamics. Raibert is a member of the National Academy of Engineering.
