The Transformational Potential of Marine Robots for Ocean Exploration – Ocean Connector Event + Webcast

Join Institute for Ocean Research Enterprise (IORE) for its March 2015 Ocean Connector event!

(See Details and Webcast Instructions Below)

On March 26, 2015, Dr. Mae Seto will discuss the transformational potential of marine robots for ocean exploration.  Dr. Seto is a Defence Scientist at Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) and Adjunct Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science at Dalhousie University.  Dr. Seto’s research and technical contributions are in the areas of autonomy and control for marine robots, multi-agent systems, underwater sensors, and ship and submarine acoustics.  Dr. Seto has written numerous papers and articles in these areas, including the book for which she is editor and a contributor, Marine Robot Autonomy.

IORE’s Ocean Connector events are an opportunity for knowledge-sharing, open discussion and networking in an informal atmosphere.  Admission is free, but if you are not yet a member or associate member, please consider supporting Institute for Ocean Research Enterprise (IORE) in that way.

Institute for Ocean Research Enterprise (IORE) is excited to announce that the speaker for our March 26th  Ocean Connector event will be Dr. M. Seto, a Defence Scientist at Defence R&D Canada (DRDC) and Adjunct Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science at Dalhousie University.  Dr. Seto’s research and technical contributions are in the areas of autonomy and control for marine (above, on, and under water) robots, multi-agent systems, underwater sensors, and ship and submarine acoustics.  Dr. Seto has written numerous papers and articles in these areas. This includes the book for which she is editor and a contributor, Marine Robot Autonomy.  She teaches the graduate autonomous robotics course in Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science at Dalhousie University.  Dr. Seto has been Chief / Principal Scientist on many DRDC trials including ones to the Canadian Arctic.  She is Past Chair of the IEEE Canadian Atlantic Section and Guest Editor for the IEEE Journal of Oceanic Engineering in Marine Vehicle Autonomy. In 2012 and 2013, Dr. Seto was an invited Guest Lecturer at Massachusetts Institute of Technology.  In 2013, Dr. Seto was at MIT as a Research Scientist collaborating with the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) in marine robot localization topics.

Dr. Seto is a former NSERC Industrial Post-Doctoral Fellow working in marine autonomous vehicles at International Submarine Engineering Research Ltd.  Her Ph.D. is in Mechanical Engineering and her B.A.Sc. is in Engineering Physics (electrical engineering option).  Both degrees are from the University of British Columbia.
