Personalizing Personal Robots
Misty Robotics –
In this talk I’ll present some ideas on how to make your robot truly your own. Beyond sensing, thinking, and acting, robots need to feel and express their own unique interpretation of the world around them, and adapt themselves to you and your environment. Their coherent personality must persist across an array of diverse, possibly 3rd-party developed capabilities as well.
Dan Grollman is the Head of Brain Engineering at Misty Robotics, the personal robotics company developing robots for homes and businesses. In his role, Dr. Grollman is focused on the intersection of machine learning, robotics and human interaction. Specifically, he is responsible for in-depth exploration and research on personality and the development of a an infinite personality engine.

Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
