Massey University Engineering/Robotics/AI Roadshow
The Massey University Engineering/Robotics/AI Roadshow was a huge hit last Thursday. Our College students (and staff), loved the opportunity to find out about the Engineering programmes on offer up the road and then listen to a handful of their PhD students talk passionately about their current projects.
One talked about how he was using Wi-Fi networks to track people in buildings, supermarkets and other businesses and the commercial and health and safety benefits of such technology. Other PhD students had built and programmed a range of different robotics equipment and AI to carry out human tasks. Our College students took a real interest in their projects and got the chance to experience first-hand how their technology worked.
Our College IT and Robotics staff have already started looking into a multitude of ways Pinehurst can work together with Massey University to develop our Digital Technology programme in 2019 and beyond. Watch this space...
