U of T Robotics News
U of T Engineering and the AGE-WELL Network of Centres of Excellence has partnered with the Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST) in China to launch a centre dedicated to researching and commercializing robotics for elder care. The centre will be virtually housed within the U of T Robotics Institute.
Sun and collaborators plan to improve on their current heart perfusion system designs by integrating sensors that measure the pressure and flow of blood in and out of the heart. Data from these sensors can be analyzed using machine learning techniques to provide a real-time, quantitative assessment of the heart’s function.
Join U of T alumni and friends for a lecture on biology-inspired continuum robots and their role in minimally invasive surgeries.
CIFAR, the Canadian-based global organization that supports collaboration and advancement in research, launched its Pan-Canadian Artificial Intelligence Strategy in 2017 — the Canada CIFAR AI Chair program is a cornerstone of that strategy.
