About the Speakers:
- Gregory Dudek (moderator) is a Professor with the School of Computer Science and a member of the McGill Research Centre for Intelligent Machines (CIM) and an Associate member of the Dept. of Electrical Engineering at McGill University. In 2008 he became the Director of the McGill School of Computer Science. Since 2012 he has been the Scientific Director of the NSERC Canadian Field Robotics Network (NCFRN). He is the former Director of McGill's Research Center for Intelligent Machines. He currently directs the McGill Mobile Robotics Laboratory. He has authored and co-authored over 300 research publications on subjects including visual object description, recognition, RF localization, robotic navigation and mapping, distributed system design, 5G telecommunications, and biological perception. His research interests include perception for mobile robotics, navigation and position estimation, environment and shape modelling, computational vision and collaborative filtering.
- Elizabeth Hunter is COO & Co-founder of Treeswift, which is building a new data and monitoring system for the natural world by pushing the frontier in robotic and machine learning technology. She is passionate about making robotics accessible to all and has developed programming and demonstrations for K-12 students and teachers. Elizabeth is a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow and has been named to the Forbes 30 Under 30 list in Science. Her work has been featured in popular news outlets such as CNN, Popular Science, and NPR.
- Douglas J. Jerolmack is Professor of Earth and Environmental Science and Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics at the University of Pennsylvania. His research focuses on the spatial and temporal evolution of patterns that emerge at the interface of fluid and sediment on Earth and planetary surfaces.
- Matt Meister is a Lead Engineer of the Icefin project at Georgia Institute of Technology. He is leading the engineering development of a robotic sampling arm that will be used to take samples below Antarctica’s Ross Ice Shelf.
- AJung Moon is an experimental roboticist. She investigates how robots and AI systems influence the way people move, behave, and make decisions in order to inform how we can design and deploy such autonomous intelligent systems more responsibly. At McGill University, she is the Director of the McGill Responsible Autonomy & Intelligent System Ethics (RAISE) lab. The RAISE lab is an interdisciplinary group that investigates the social and ethical implications of robots and AI systems and explores what it means for engineers to be designing and deploying such systems responsibly for a better, technological future. She is a Korean-Canadian and based in Montréal, Canada.
