Robotronica @ QUT

20 August 2017

Robotronica will return to QUT's Gardens Point Precinct in August to reveal the most up to date advancements and innovations in the fields of robotics and interactive design.

This all-day, all-ages free event will have QUT abuzz with demonstrations, workshops, games and discussions that will inform, inspire and amaze you.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE:

  • Find out from US world-leading roboticist Professor Ron Arkin about sneaky robots that trick you. What are the moral and ethical implications?
  • Take a selfie and chat with social robot, Pepper
  • Be the first to program a robot at Code-A-Bot, The Cube's latest screen project based around a fictional recycling facility run entirely by robots

There's something for everyone at this year's Robotronica.

Bookings for talks and workshops open in late July. To be the first to hear about Robotronica events and bookings, sign up to QUT Precincts eNews.
