  • Repeating EventSix Sigma Green Belt for Process Improvement

    Tue, Sep 10, 2019 @ 09:00 AM - 05:00 PM

    Executive Education

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Abstract: Learn how to integrate principles of business, statistics, and engineering to achieve tangible results. Master the use of Six Sigma to quantify the critical quality issues in your company. Once the issues have been quantified, statistics can be applied to provide probabilities of success and failure. Six Sigma methods increase productivity and enhance quality.

  • CS Colloquium: Guy Hoffman (Cornell University) - Designing Robots for Collaboration and Companionship

    Tue, Sep 10, 2019 @ 01:30 PM - 03:00 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Guy Hoffman, Cornell University

    Talk Title: Designing Robots for Collaboration and Companionship

    Series: Computer Science Colloquium

    Abstract: Designing robots for human interaction is a multifaceted challenge involving the robot's intelligent behavior, physical form, mechanical structure, and interaction schema. The Cornell Human-Robot Collaboration and Companionship (HRC^2) lab develops and studies human-centered robots, combining methods from AI, Mechanical Design, and Human-Computer Interaction. This talk focuses on four recent projects from our lab: A collaborative wearable robotic "third arm", a robot that helps human designers make better decisions, an emotive robotic skin that can produce goosebumps and spikes, and an open-source social robotics construction kit that is based on craft materials.

    This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium.


    Biography: Guy Hoffman is an Assistant Professor and the Mills Family Faculty Fellow in the Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Cornell University. Prior to that he was Assistant Professor at IDC Herzliya and co-director of the IDC Media Innovation Lab. Hoffman holds a Ph.D from the MIT Media Lab. He heads the Human-Robot Collaboration and Companionship (HRC^2) group, studying the algorithms, interaction schema, and designs enabling close interactions between people and personal robots in the workplace and at home. Among others, Hoffman developed the world's first human-robot joint theater performance, and the first real-time improvising human-robot Jazz duet. His research papers won several top academic awards, including Best Paper awards at HRI and robotics conferences in 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2013, 2015, 2018, and 2019. His TEDx talk is one of the most viewed online talks on robotics, watched more than 3 million times.
