The 4rd Annual IEEE UK and Ireland RAS Chapter Conference
Show details
The aim of the annual IEEE UK&I RAS conference to improve the communication of its members and other researchers, young students and industrial professionals who are interested in the activities of RAS in research, development and education, share the knowledge, latest research achievements and technologies in RAS, and promote collaboration and knowledge transformation.

Synchronising with the pace of IEEE Robotics and Automation Society, the UK & Ireland RAS chapter addresses the advancement of the theory and practice of robotics and automation engineering and science and of the allied arts and sciences, and for the maintenance of high professional standards among its members. Today, Robotics and Automation Technologies have been widely applied in various areas, such as Extreme & Hazard Environments, Manufacturing, Food Automaiton, Medical Surgery, Healthcare, Agriculture, Urban Search and Rescue, Surveillance, etc. AI technology has played significant roles in the development of RAS. Internet of Robotic Things (IoRT) inspired wider applications of RAS. The value of IoRT has been demonstrated in distributed, heterogeneous robot control paradigms like networked robot systems or robot ecologies, or in approaches such as ubiquitous robotics and cloud robotics that place resource-intensive computation on the cloud.

Robotics Forum Seminar - Medical Robots
Show details
Abstract
The talk will discuss the transition from open, to minimally invasive and non-invasive surgery, and how this necessitates the development of medical robots. The state-of-the art and innovative developments in the field will be presented. Advances in artificial intelligence offer great promise towards automation in robotic surgery, which however pose significant practical, ethical and legal concerns. To this end, novel “human in the loop” approaches based on advanced human-robot interfaces are proposed.

Bio
George has a background in Mechatronics and Computer Science and is leading the Human-centred Automation, Robotics and Automation in Surgery -HARMS- lab, at the Department of Surgery and Cancer and Hamlyn Centre, Imperial College London. Research at the HARMS lab is underpinned by a Human-Centred paradigm. The main goals of this paradigm can be broadly identified: (a) Patient- and surgeon-specific designs with the aim to minimize and eliminate invasiveness, optimise outcomes, improve ergonomics and promote personalisation; (b) Frugal innovation to provide affordable surgical technologies, allow infrastructure re-purposing and small theatre footprint; (c) Perceptually-enabled functionalities to improve ergonomics, reduce mental fatigue, facilitate automation and increase safety; (d) Enabling technologies able to introduce radical change, and augment performance and capabilities by making robotic surgery attainable and accessible; (e) Disruptive innovation that pushes the boundaries by proposing new paradigms in minimally invasive surgery.
