Q+A with Dr. Nick Hawes, Senior Lecturer at the School of Computer Science at the University of Birmingham.
Q: Tell us about you, and what you do.
I'm a Senior Lecturer in the School of Computer Science at the University of Birmingham. This means I spend my time either working as scientist doing research with robots or teaching students about Artificial Intelligence (AI) or programming robots to be autonomous (which means to be able to do things for themselves). I also spend a bit of my time talking to the public about autonomous robots, how they work and what they might do in the future.
