  • CS Colloquium: Ankur Mehta (UCLA) - Towards $1 robots

    Tue, Feb 01, 2022 @ 02:30 PM - 03:50 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Ankur Mehta, University of California, Los Angeles

    Talk Title: Towards $1 robots

    Series: Computer Science Colloquium

    Abstract: Note: *New time: 2:30PM-3:50PM PT*

    Robots are pretty great -- they can make some hard tasks easy, some dangerous tasks safe, or some unthinkable tasks possible. And they're just plain fun to boot. But how many robots have you interacted with recently? And where do you think that puts you compared to the rest of the world's people?

    In contrast to computation, automating physical interactions continues to be limited in scope and breadth. I'd like to change that. But in particular, I'd like to do so in a way that's accessible to everyone, everywhere. In our lab, we work to lower barriers to robotics design, creation, and operation through
    material and mechanism design, computational tools, and mathematical analysis. We hope that with our efforts, everyone will be soon able to enjoy the benefits of robotics to work, to learn, and to play.

    **Prof. Ankur Mehta will give his talk in person at SGM 124 and we will also host the talk over Zoom.**

    This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium.


    Biography: Now, this is a story all about how
    My life took me to where I am now
    And I'd like to take a minute, just sit right there
    I'll tell you how I became a prof at UCLA.

    From East Pennsylvania born and raised
    MIT is where I spent the next of my days
    Getting my Masters and Bachelor's too
    ECE is the field I did then pursue.

    Then a couple of years until I finally would
    From California, Berkeley get my doctor hood
    I got in one lil' postdoc at MIT CSAIL
    And then I moved to LA just south of Bel Air.

    Prof. Ankur Mehta is an assistant professor of Electrical and computer Engineering at UCLA, and directs the Laboratory for Embedded Machines and Ubiquitous Robots (LEMUR). Pushing towards his visions of a future filled with robots, his research interests involve printable robotics, rapid design and
    fabrication, control systems, and multi-agent networks. He has received the NSF CAREER award and a Samueli fellowship, and has received best paper awards in the IEEE Robotics & Automation Magazine and the International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS).

    Prior to joining the UCLA faculty, Prof. Mehta was a postdoc at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratories investigating design automation for printable robots. Before to that, he conducted research as a graduate student at UC Berkeley in wireless sensor networks and systems, small autonomous aerial robots and rockets, control systems, and micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS).

    When not in the lab, Ankur enjoys puzzles, ultimate frisbee, board games.
