ACM-W Celebrating Technology Leaders’ next session “Women in Robotics” is now scheduled for March 31st, 2021 at 12:00 pm Pacific.
2021 marks the 100th anniversary of the first use of the term “robot” to describe a non-human, artificial being (1921 R.U.R.). However, it’s only in the past decade or so that we have seen substantial growth in the technological capabilities of robots and related career opportunities in robotics. In this session of ACM-W “Celebrating Technology Leaders,” we focus on the intersection of Computer Science and Robotics. We invite women in computing, leading successful careers in the robotics arena to better understand this truly interdisciplinary field. What are the few big industries in robotics currently? What education, experience, and skillset, can set someone with a computing background for success in the robotics arena? And most importantly, how did our panelists’ unique personal background, interests, and career aspirations led them to be where they are today?
