Quiz a Whiz with the RSE
Professor of Robotics Sethu Vijayakumar FRSE discusses his research in the latest video from the Royal Society of Edinburgh.
Quiz a Whiz is a new YouTube series from Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE). School pupils and teachers are encouraged to submit a question and the RSE asks a leading expert to record the answer.
Professor Vijayakumar holds a Personal Chair in Robotics in Informatics and is the Director of the Edinburgh Centre for Robotics, a joint initiative between the University of Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt University.
Recently he has also found fame as the new judge in the cult BBC 2 show, Robot Wars.
In the four-minute Quiz a Whiz video, he is asked:
- What made you interested in science?
- Could you explain your research in robotics?
- What will be the next big discovery in robotics?
- If someone wanted a career designing and building robots, how would they go about it?
Quiz a Whiz is a brilliant way for the Royal Society of Edinburgh to share easy-to-understand, bite-sized chunks of science because it answers the questions people really want to ask.
