18 September

Today I gave a one-hour talk at the IEEE 9th International Symposium on Robotics and Sensor Environments (ROSE). I talked about our work in underwater robotics (as I often do) and specifically dealt with summarization, terrain identification and a tiny bit about human-robot interaction.

One of the components of the talk was work by my former student Philippe Giguere, now a professor and Laval University in Quebec City. He was in the audience which made that part of the presentation feel a bit weird to me -- here I was reminiscing about work he had done with me and almost sharing the odd inside joke with him while this audience was listening. It was a very nice audience and they asked a lot of good questions, which left me with a generally positive vibe. Not a bad way to start a Sunday morning, after all!

The key coauthors of the work I presented, in addition to Philippe, are Yogesh Girdhar and Junaed Sattar.

The summarization part of the talk is covered (at a very high level) in my TEDxMcGIll talk shown here.
