Judah vs. RoboCanes

Judah Friedlander challenges RoboCanes, soccer playing robots from the University of Miami. He learns how well robots can work together and how bad they are at standing on two feet. And he challenges them to a match with the future of humanity on the line. Shown on TechCrunch.

RoboCup US Open at UM

The University of Miami is hosting the RoboCup U.S. Open 2017, 28th-29th April 2017. The RoboCup Standard Platform League is a one of the RoboCup soccer leagues where all teams participate using the same robot, the NAO robot from SoftBank Robotics. These robots play fully autonomously and each one takes decisions separately from the others, but they still have to play as a team by using communications. The teams play on a green field with white lines and goal posts, with no other landmarks, and the ball consists in a realistic white and black soccer one. These game characteristics generate a very challenging scenario, which allows improving the league every year.

Women in Tech Careers

Did you know that in 2013, just 26 percent of computing jobs in the United States were held by women? Several panelists from academia and industry have been invited to the University of Miami (UM) to discuss the challenges facing women in tech careers today, and how we can work together to resolve those challenges.
