Robot Swarms

Nanoparticles for cancer applications are increasingly able to move, sense, and interact the body in a controlled fashion, an affordance that has led them to be called robots. The challenge is to discover how trillions of nanobots can work together to improve the detection and treatment of tumors. Towards this end, the field of swarm robotics offers tools and techniques for controlling large numbers of robots with limited capabilities. Our swarm strategies are designed in realistic simulators using bio-inspiration, machine learning and crowdsourcing (NanoDoc). Strategies are then translated to large swarms of robots or preliminary tissue-on-a-chip devices.

Git-fu - the art of GIT

A talk on some (lesser known) Git tip and tricks.

Have you done a git bisect? Do you make full use of the git graph? Do you know the difference between ‘..’ and ‘…’ ?

A practical tour of some of the less common tools and uses of git. Some git tricks could become a part of your regular “Git-fu”, others might only come up to help you get out of a bind.

Hello and thanks for dropping by. We’re starting our new meetup group very soon - please keep checking back to see what’s going on.

Meetings will be held on the first Thursday of each month, starting September 2013. We welcome talks about anything IT-based - particularly, but not exclusively, programming-centred. If you would like to present a talk, please get in touch via our Twitter account.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Please sign up for our group and register to attend the sessions you are interested in, so that we can cater for the right amount of beer and pizza!
