Every single person today generates huge amount of data. From pictures to files. From cute cat videos to important spreadsheets. How do we store it all? How do we gather all this information and eventually use it to create robots which can help to improve healthcare? 
Find out with our two researchers showing the challenges of data storage and robotics.

Excuse me, The Future is here and is asking what to do with the data…

Jason Morrison (Associate Professor Biosystems Engineering)
The scientific community at large has brought us speech recognition, AlphaZero, the Event Horizon Telescope, and the Large Hadron Collider. Tech companies have delivered information search, home automation, social connectivity, and global communication. Collaborative endeavours have brought Wikipedia, and open source innovation platforms both hardware and software. This talk will present an overview of these monumental accomplishments and the need to grow methods in data classification and search.

Robotics and haptics to improve healthcare: From idea to implementation

Yaser Maddahi (PhD, Peng CEO and President – Founder of Tactile Robotics)
Tactile Robotics is a Manitoban technology development and consulting
company that brings together a talented team of engineers, roboticists,
statisticians, scientists, and health science experts, from universities across
Canada. In this seminar, we present our endeavors to employ robotics and
haptics technologies to develop smart instruments and robotized systems
for engineering, medicine, dentistry, and rehabilitation therapy. In addition,
we explain how we employed robotics to perform remote tasks in the
industry on the earth and conduct surgical task in the International Space
