Inspire Talks is an exciting opportunity to enjoy hearing about cutting edge topics from science and design. In the next session we will feature two special speakers, one from University of the Arts London, who is visiting DLX Design Lab here in Tokyo and the other a Professor from the Design-Led X Platform at the Institute of Industrial Science – they will be talking about their latest research and projects associated with the robotic movement.

Prof. Shunji Yamanaka (Professor of Design Engineering, IIS, The University of Tokyo) is one of the most respected design engineers in Japan, with previous work ranging from wristwatches to railway carriages, will talk about life-like robots that re-examine the relationship between humans and machines and designing bio-likeness in robotic movement.

Dr. Vali Lalioti (Programme Director, Creative Computing Institute, University of the Arts London) will talk about the challenge and significance of robotic movement in how we engage and work creatively with robots and present the latest robotic prototypes and co-design research with roboticists and designers in a capsule-exhibition.

Following the talks, there will be a short Q&A session.
