Robomind exhibition:

RoboMind is software specifically developed to support technology education. By programming a robot, students learn about logic, computer science and robotics. The beauty of RoboMind is the compactness of the learning environment. It directly connects logical thinking to solving challenges encountered in daily life and industry. RoboMind is used all over the world.

Robomind will be exhibiting some of their products in this fourth workshop on mechanisms and robot design – Date: 20/09/2018, from 14:00 to 18:00 – Beside the auditorium in Block B.

Minicourse # 1: Artificial Intelligence – Prof. Marcos Matsuo:

Neural networks and deep learning currently provide very good solutions to many problems in computer vision, speech recognition, and natural processing language. In particular, such solutions have been widely used to enhance the navigability of autonomous vehicles and the interactive skills of personal assistant systems (as, Siri and Alexa). Thus, aiming to present an introduction to the growing field of deep learning, Professor Marcos Matsuo is offering a mini-course to introduce the core concepts of the theory behind neural networks. During the mini-course, a neural network capable of recognizing handwritten digits will be implemented using Matlab software. The target audience is undergraduate students interested in the machine learning field who have concluded Calculus II and are familiar with Matlab. Date: 20/09/2018, from 13:30 to 18:00. Room: A003 – Vasto Verde.


Minicourse # 2: Non-invasive brain-machine interfaces fundaments – Prof. Fabricio Brasil: (Closed-inscriptions)
