About the Forum

The Forum convened thought leaders from industry and academia to explore the theme of “Shared Autonomy: New Directions in Human-Machine Interaction”.

Each invited speaker gave a 20-minute talk followed by Q&A. We had an audience of more than 200 participants representing robotics experts in industry and academia. The program included a demo showcase of UC San Diego robotics projects.
