Georgia Tech’s Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines is led by Henrik I. Christensen, a noted roboticist and thinker who recently speculated that children born today will never have to drive a conventional car. He’s constantly cited as a source for where robotics is heading in the future, even speculating here as to what Google will do with all its recent robotics acquisitions.
The program aims to give students an understanding of a diversity of robotics topics, such as mechanics, interaction, perception, and artificial intelligence and cognition.
