) Dr. Mark Yim, Associate Professor at the University of Pennsylvania will share his vast knowledge of robotics and trends in this area with attendees at the American Society of Inventors meeting on February 25th. Dr. Yim has been featured at Wired Magazine’s NextFest 2008 where he showed the PolyBot, a modular reconfigurable robot that can reassemble itself if it comes apart (think of the silver robot in Terminator 2). This exciting technology is not often demonstrated outside of the academic world, and it represents some of the leading edge innovation in robotics.
Dr Yim also does research with MEMS and batch fabrication techniques, as well as with brute force digital time optimal control. He received his undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University, with both his Masters in Mechanical Engineering and his Ph.D. from Stanford University. He has spoken at various conferences on the topic of robotics.
The presentation is free and open to the public, and will be held at the offices of Buchanan, Ingersoll & Rooney, 1835 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103. The conference room is on the 15th floor. All attendees must register in advance by sending an email with name, address, and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org. The doors will open at approximately 6:30pm for a brief networking session prior to the start of the meeting at 7:00pm. We are inviting any students to come and attend the meeting.
The American Society of Inventors is the oldest continuously-operating inventor organization in the U.S. A not-for-profit educational foundation based in Philadelphia, the group focuses on educating the independent inventor, and presents a variety of speakers on all aspects of inventing. Meetings are always FREE and various topics are presented five or six times a year. In addition to the public forums and networking events, the ASI Board of Directors assembles monthly to provide FREE invention evaluations for its members.
