A Pint of Robotics

A Pint of Robotics

OCTOBER 5 | 12 | 19

Introducing A Pint of Robotics — a series of three talks hosted by Warren Connors, double surgical robotics patient and underwater robotics scientist.

From finding historical shipwrecks to saving lives, A Pint of Robotics aims to raise awareness on some of the innovative work taking place in our community and to raise awareness and support for the QEII Foundation’s Robotics Program. Hear from engineers, doctors and scientists about some of the amazing applications of robotics.
