‘Automation in Life’, Part of ESRC Festival of Social Science

This event is part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science (running 2-9 November). The FoSS celebrates some of the country’s leading social science research, demonstrating how the work of social scientists has an impact on all of our lives.

Automation in Life

What springs to mind when you hear the word Automation? If it is robots, then you are in luck! This event will showcase a drone and dog robot among others from Robotics at Leeds. But automation in Life is about so much more than just demonstrations of robotics as it is a topical theme that will increasingly ‘interact’ with us from driverless vehicles to self-healing cities. The day will consist of talks, activities, a tour of VirtuoCity (a world-leading facility in city simulation for transport research), demonstrations, and breakout session to generate discussion on the theme of automation.

This event is open to all.
