Please join the Penn Club in celebrating Ben Franklin's 308th Birthday with a delicious brunch and a presentation entitled "Intelligent Robots" by Professor Daniel Lee, an expert Roboticist at the Engineering School of the University of Pennsylvania
Please join members, current Penn students, newly admitted students to the Penn Class of 2018, Penn Parents, guests, and friends of the University of Pennsylvania Alumni Club of Western PA and the Wharton Club of Western Pennsylvania, as we proudly welcome all University of Pennsylvania Alumni, Past, Present, and Future (Penn Class of 2018 Admittees), to celebrate Ben Franklin's 308th birthday and his greatest achievement: the founding of the University of Pennsylvania!
We are honored to have as our speaker, Professor Daniel Lee, the Evan C Thompson Term Chair, Raymond S. Markowitz Faculty Fellow, and Professor in the School of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Pennsylvania. Professor Lee is also the Co-Director of the CMU-Penn University Transportation Center: http://utc.ices.cmu.edu/utc/
Today we have machines that can easily beat us in intellectual pursuits such as chess or Jeopardy, yet are still unable to help us do the laundry or wash our dishes. I will discuss some of the latest research on intelligent robots at Penn, including getting robots to drive, play soccer, and perform rescue missions.
