Dr. Anca Dragan #ALD17 @findingada

From Dr. Anca Dragan’s Berkeley page:

I am an Assistant Professor in the EECS Department at UC Berkeley. My goal is to enable robots to work with, around, and in support of people. I run the InterACT Lab, where we focus on algorithms for human-robot interaction — algorithms that move beyond the robot’s function in isolation, and generate robot behavior that also accounts for interaction and coordination with end-users. We work across different applications, from assistive robots, to manufacturing, to autonomous cars, and draw from optimal control, planning, estimation, learning, and cognitive science. I also helped found and serve on the steering committee for the Berkeley AI Research (BAIR) Lab, and am a co-PI of the Center for Human-Compatible AI.

Adafruit 608-1

October 10th is Ada Lovelace Day! Today the world celebrates all of the accomplishments of women in science, art, design, technology, engineering, and math. Each year, Adafruit highlights a number of women who are pioneering their fields and inspiring women of all ages to make their voices heard. Today we will be sharing the stories of women that we think are modern day “Adas” alongside historical women that have made impacts in science and math.

Please promote and share #ALD17 with your friends and family so we can promote and share with all of the world wide web!
