The workshop on Underwater Vision as part of the ICCV 2013 was (in my own humble opinion ;) ) a success!! Thanks to my colleagues at the ACFR and the PC members who supported me and helped make this possible.

Euro Trip

ICRA is over, and it was great. So lovely to see and hang out with so many familiar faces.

Really enjoyed the fewer parallel track and massive poster sessions.

Btw, I'll be in Europe for a while visiting friends and colleagues so send me a line and we can potentially meet up! smiley

ACRA 2012

NewsPosted by navid nourani Mon, December 03, 2012 23:57:25
At the Australasian Conference in Robotics and Automation (ACRA) in Wellington. There are some really interesting talks. Looking forward to reading the papers in detail.

HOWEVER, the most exciting part thus far is that Alberto Elfes, the father of occupancy grid maps, is charing a session with occupancy grid map papers!! How cool is that?

An interesting video on Robot Ethics from the Economist.

Roboethics is something I believe we should start considering much earlier in our work habit.
