The Engineering Education and AI-Augmented Learning Interdisciplinary Research Theme will host a workshop and networking event from 9:30 a.m.-3 p.m. on Aug. 20 in the Aerospace Building on East Campus. In addition to presentations from seed grant winners and interactive sessions, Professor Maja Mataric from the University of Southern California will speak at 10 a.m. Mataric is the founding director of the USC Robotics and Autonomous Systems Center and a pioneer of the field of socially assistive robotics. Interdisciplinary Research Themes in the college of engineering are all made up of faculty, staff and students. They help researchers coordinate faculty hires, share facilities and use seed funding to leverage work that could provide transformational societal impact. Remote participation is available and registration can be done online. Contact Angela Bielefeldt and Alessandro Roncone for more information.
