Presentation / Lightning Talk
Computing for Robots and Biomolecules
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Robots are rapidly evolving from simple instruments for repetitive tasks to increasingly sophisticated machines capable of performing challenging operations in our daily environment. This talk will describe efficient algorithms for computing robot motions from high-level specifications. By drawing an analogy between robots and molecules, the talk will also present robotics-inspired methods to compute the flexibility of large biomolecular machines with the ultimate goal of aiding the discovery of new therapeutics.
