Autonomy and Me: Symbiotic Systems for Sustainable Environments and Prosperity.
In this online lecture (kindly facilitated by Heriot Watt University) Professor David Flynn will provide us with an overview of current research within the Offshore Robotics for Certification of Assets (ORCA) hub. ORCA’s primary goal is to use robotic systems and Artificial Intelligence to revolutionise Asset Integrity Management for the offshore energy sector through the provision of game-changing, remote solutions which are readily integratable with existing and future assets and sensors, and that can operate and interact safely in autonomous or semi-autonomous modes in complex and cluttered environments. He will then describe how recent advances in Cyber Physical Systems is exploring how we can create trustworthy autonomous assistants, supporting human safety, prosperity and potential.
Professor David Flynn is the Director of the Smart Systems Group, Vice-Chair of the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) Scotland and also Associate Director National Centre for Energy System Integration in addition to his role at the School of Engineering & Physical Sciences Heriot-Watt University.
