Prof. David M. Lane, fellowship of the Royal Academy of Engineering, Royal Society of Edinburgh, director of Edinburgh Centre for Robotics (ECR), visited Shenyang Institute of Automation (SIA) upon the invitation of the State Key Laboratory of Robotics (SKLR) on March 10th. During his visit, David M. Lane made a report titled Delivering Transformational Innovation from Robotics and Artificial Intelligence Engineering. Shuo Li, deputy director of SIA, chaired the meeting. Xisheng Feng, Academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering, and other relevant researchers and graduate students of SIA, attended the meeting.

During the report, Prof. David M. Lane gave an introduction of the latest research on artificial intelligence, human-machine interaction, marine robotics, service robot and medical robot in ECR. He emphasized that the development of artificial intelligence and robot technology is mainly driven by neural network mechanism at present, delivering transformational innovation of robotics. Then Prof. David M. Lane conducted discussions with the relevant researchers and graduate students of SIA and gave patient answers to the raised questions.
