    Join us January 30 for "Grand Challenges in Robotics: Dexterity," https://lnkd.in/gEDYgBGA an interactive webinar discussing how progress in robotic materials is impacting the field of manipulation. The second conversation in the series, hosted by Northwestern's Center for Robotics and Biosystems.

    Grand Challenges in Robotics: Dexterity
    Conversation 2 on Robotic Dexterity: Novel Materials for Robust Grasping and Manipulation
    Monday, January 30, 3-4 p.m. CST

    Moderator: Carmel Majidi, Carnegie Mellon University
    Panelists: Elliot W. Hawkes, UC Santa Barbara; Tess Hellebrekers, Meta AI; Nancy Pollard, Carnegie Mellon University; Yon Visell, UC Santa Barbara

    Novel material architectures capable of matching the mechanics, sensing capabilities, and articulated motions of natural human hands have the potential for transformative impact in robotic grasping and manipulation. Such advancements build on efforts to combine research in dexterous manipulation and haptics with emerging methods in soft robotics and integrated material systems. In this panel, experts from these domains will discuss and debate how progress in robotic materials is impacting the field of manipulation.
