NAIS 2022 Keynote: AI- and Robotics-enabled systems, a forward leap into real life applications

Looking forward to presenting my keynote titled “AI- and Robotics-enabled systems, a forward leap into real life applications” at the 2022 symposium of the Norwegian AI Society on May 31 - June 1, OsloMet - Oslo Metropolitan University. AI- and Robotics-enabled systems are becoming more and more relevant for real life applications. This technology may enable society to a conceptual leap forward especially concerning demanding real-life scenarios. In this talk, different scenarios wi

Forward leap into the metaverse: integrating VR/AR and haptics in STEM education

Our work has been selected by the editors as the cover of the forthcoming issue of the Robotics journal. Cover Story (view full-size image): With the introduction of the metaverse, the virtual digital world is going to take a conceptual leap forward. As technology progresses, bringing us new immersive worlds, we must adapt how we educate students and equip teachers to face these new challenges. In this perspective, hands-on laboratory work and practical experience are currently under-
