On July 6 all members of the STAR Lab (including Mia ;) celebrated a successfull semester by enjoying a wonderful dinner followed by KTV with sining and games. :)
During the SIST open days high school students from throughout China visited the School of Information Science and Technology to learn about the different topics that the School is teaching and researching. On several days the STAR Lab hosted the students, showcasing our research and let them play with our robots.

On May 28, the New York Times published an article titled “Is China Outsmarting America in A.I.?”. It discusses how research on Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) is being promoted in China while the US is cutting back on research funding. As an example for the Chinese A.I. research Prof. Sören Schwertfeger and his research lab were prominently covered in the article, highlighting the superb research conditions at ShanghaiTech University.
Prof. Schwertfeger joined the School of Information Science and Technology (SIST) as an Assistant Professor in August 2014 and is doing research on intelligent functions for mobile robots, also in the area of search and rescue robotics. He is also the general chair of the 15th IEEE International Symposium on Safety, Security, and Rescue Robotics 2017 (SSRR 2017) to be held in October at ShanghaiTech University.
