White Symposium to Examine Collective Animal Behavior and Control of Robotic Networks

This year's Charles and Helen White Symposium will explore multi-disciplinary approaches to examining current state-of-the-art research in the exciting areas of cooperative control, swarm technology, and the intersections of biology and engineering, as well as future developments in this field and the crucial applications of these technologies in society today.

Panelists include:

Dr. Naomi Leonard, Edwin S. Wilsey Professor, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Princeton University and 2015 Innovation Hall of Fame Inductee.

Dr. Thomas Curtin, Senior Fellow, Institute for Adaptive Systems, and Senior Principal Research Scientist, Applied Physics Laboratory, University of Washington
