The 17th annual Gould Lecture will feature Dr. Yoky Matsuoka, the Torode Family Endowed Career Development Professor in Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington.
Dr. Matsuoka’s talk will describe how a neural-inspired approach to physical human-robot interaction can re-enable limb movement for people with disabilities, and how, in the near future, robots will be used to rehabilitate and assist daily activities for people with disabilities. This change will substantially reduce both the medical cost and the burden on families.
