Social Robots For The Future And NOW - Dr. Cory Kidd
  • Description

    Meet Autom - your weight loss coach. (Yes! Besides Dr. Kidd, Autom will be there to meet us as well.) For many decades, movies like Blade Runner, Bicentennial Man, and I, Robot, have made us believe that someday, human interaction with our machine friends can be as seamless as it is with our human counterparts. Is the future finally here? If so, how real is this? What are the applications for social robots and how do we make them? We are delighted to have one of our Media Lab alum, Dr. Kidd, who specializes in human-robot interaction to help us decode the mystery.

    Kidd Biography

    Dr. Cory Kidd is CEO and founder of Intuitive Automata, a health care company that creates interactive coaches to help people address the challenges of making lasting change. Dr. Kidd received his M.S. and Ph.D. at the MIT Media Lab in human-robot interaction. While there, he conducted studies that showed the advantages of using a physical robot over screen-based interactions. He conducted an extensive study showing the efficacy of his weight loss coach in helping people to diet and did work in local nursing homes with robotic companions for elderly individuals.

    Prior to his work at MIT, Dr. Kidd received his BS in Computer Science at the Georgia Institute of Technology. While there he was a part of the Aware Home Research Initiative, a focused research effort that was looking for ways to allow older people to live in their homes longer. He managed that research project and taught courses on related technologies.

Ulrich Weinberg

Opening Keynote By Prof. Ulrich Weinberg, HPI D-school / Intersection'15 + DMI Europe In Berlin
  • Description

    Prof. Weinberg is the head of the HPI Design School in Potsdam, since 2007 and his connection with the D-School gives him extensive experience in Design Thinking. Prof. Weinberg has a passion for solving problems through focusing on human values and connected thinking which makes his ideas infectious to his students.

    Uli Weinberg comes from a television media and computer-graphic industry. Spending 25 years in a niche market, he had a single perspective towards business strategies and solving problems.

    It wasn't until Prof. Weinberg visited Stamford University that he witnessed a unique way of thinking, a way of solving problems by thinking “out of the box”. Placing students from different professional sectors in teams, they were able to solve problems by focusing on human needs and values rather than using technology and business strategies. The concept of using real time thinking and grouping people into teams from different disciplines has revolutionized how Uli Weinberg looked at education.

    “After 25 years of interdisciplinary, innovation driven work in film, 3D animation and computer games, I didn´t hesitate a second to take on a challenge of building an institute which focused on innovation in all areas of life”.

Will your future be 3D printed?
WikiStage Stanford
  • Description

    The talk focuses on the role of the 3D printers, machines that create three-dimensional objects from a digital files, in the close future. Started off as an industrial piece of technology in the 1980s, 3D printing is now adapted to an everyday user. The technique could be found useful in various domains such as medical bioprinting or architecture yet the knowledge about is still not yet developed. Further education about it could unlock its full potential.

    "They will be everywhere, they will print anything, and these fantastic machines are called 3D Printers."

    "Education will really be the key to unlock the potential of 3D printing. Kids are fascinating to watch when they work with this technology."

    "All right, let's do a little bit of sight fight. They will be everywhere, they will print anything, whatever we want to, whenever we want to, and those fantastic machines are called 3D printers. And what they do is that instead of removing material, they build objects from nothing, layer by layer, depositing a variety of material. And so the question I'm asking is will our future be 3D printed? Will we go to a restaurant and have a 3D printed steak? I don't know if you've heard about it, but houses are starting to be 3D printed. And so the reality right now is a little bit different. I don't think that anyone in the room has a 3D printer right now. I have one, I use it quite a lot and it gets me really excited about the potential future of this technology, and fascinated by the current applications. So what is interesting about 3D printing is that it started as an industrial technology in the mid eighties, and the key date is when the patent expired in the middle of the last decade, allowing makers to start building their own machines. They now sell it for couple hundred dollars. You can build it, assemble it yourself, modify it, of course use it and this with minimal technical knowledge. And what is great is that even though I won't be able to print all my footwear or stuff from my kitchen with my 3D printer, I can still print very interesting things with my machine at home. For example this is reduced model of an arm that you can use, if you want, as a cast for immobilizing if you have a wound.This is a toy cat that's shiny and nice. And the one i really like is this musical instrument".(...)
