Author Information

Sabine Hauert (University of Bristol)

Sabine is Lecturer in Robotics at the University of Bristol in the UK and President and Cofounder of Robohub.org, a non-profit dedicated to connecting the robotics community to the world. Robohub has helped thousands of experts in robotics communicate about their work through podcasts, articles, and videos, that reach over a million views each year. As an expert in science communication, Sabine is often invited to discuss the future of robotics, including in the journal Nature, at the European Parliament, and as a member of the Royal Society's Working Group on Machine Learning. Sabine’s research at the Bristol Robotics Laboratory focusses in designing swarms that work in large numbers (>1000), and at small scales (<1 cm). Swarm strategies are either inspired from nature or are automatically discovered using machine learning and crowdsourcing. Before joining the University of Bristol, Sabine engineered swarms of nanoparticles for cancer treatment at MIT as a Human Frontier Science Program Cross-Disciplinary Fellow, and deployed swarms of flying robots at EPFL. She is a Royal Society Machine Learning Working Group member.
