His Royal Highness The Duke of York today gave his stamp of approval to the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision’s life-enhancing research, creating robots able to see for the good of all people and our planet.
The Duke of York is in Australia on a working visit, including to hold Pitch@Palace Australia 2.0 which provides a platform to amplify and accelerate the work of entrepreneurs.
On a tour of QUT he was briefed by Centre Director Peter Corke and Chief Operating Officer Sue Keay and introduced to a line-up of researchers and robots, including Pepper (Softbank’s social robot), medical robot Snakebot and Reef warrior Rangerbot – recently supersized into LarvalBot, primed to share the love in a world-first IVF coral regeneration program on the Great Barrier Reef.
A great honour too that The Royal Family featured photos from The Duke’s briefing with Centre researchers (also including PhD Researcher in Medical Robotics Andrew Razjigaev and Research Fellow Feras Dayoub) on its official Twitter account.
