Making Open Source Robotics Approachable: The Future is Now! - James Ketrenos, Intel

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Robots and multi-rotor coptors have made their way into our lives. Whether it's a robotic vacuum cleaner or a first-person-view quad-copter racing through trees, today's devices are the toys we always dreamed of having as kids. Computational performance, power utilization, thermals, and weight have all reached a tipping point where we can now feasibly build and deploy intelligent robotic devices to improve our lives: they can now see, hear, and interact with the world.

Attend this presentation to get a introduction to the general problems in maker robotics and learn about the open source projects which have emerged over the last few years in an effort to bring robotics to the masses. Building a robot is no longer something that takes years of research--the technologies and capabilities previously only available in science fiction are now at your fingertips.


James Ketrenos

James' career at Intel has taken him from wireless Linux kernel development, up the stack to web based run-time platforms using Blink, and to many points in between. Most recently, James has been able to combine his hobby of robotics into his professional focus--working to make intelligent robot development more approachable by open source developers. | | James has spoken at conferences and summits in the past, including Linux Symposium, MeeGo...
