Brainwaves: from the Edinburgh Centre for Robotics

One of the most enjoyable parts of what we do at Skillfluence is getting the opportunity to work with some ridiculously brilliant people who are doing world-changing work. 

Through our involvement with the  Edinburgh Centre for Robotics we’ve had the opportunity to work with some of the brightest minds in robotics.  Last week the BBC caught up with one of our good friends at the centre, Professor Sethu Vijayakumar, to discuss the role robots will play in the future.  Follow the link to

 listen to the full BBC interview with Sethu Vijayakumar.

Sethu Vijayakumar is Professor of Robotics at the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh and judge on BBC2’s Robot Wars.  He has spent his career in robotics pioneering the use of large scale machine learning techniques for use in healthcare, in our homes and in ground breaking unmanned missions to Mars, the precursor to a potential human Martian colony.
