Squishy Mathematical Reasoning in a Robotics Start-up
Industrial Problems Seminar
Michelle Snider (Service Robotics & Technologies)
Service Robotics & Technologies (SRT Labs) brings legacy infrastructure, smart sensors, and collaborative robotics into a unified data management ecosystem in order to monitor, analyze and automate systems. Applications range from smart laboratories to smart buildings to smart cities. The smart technology space provides a wealth of interesting projects which may not immediately sound like math problems but whose solutions often greatly benefit from a mathematical perspective. In this talk, I will discuss some different projects where my team applied mathematical approaches to find realistically implementable solutions, interspersed with career lessons learned along the way.
