Udacity Talks is all about getting great minds together to discuss the big ideas of the day, in an unscripted format powered by questions from Udacity students. With Sebastian Thrun as our host, we’ve talked Self-Driving Cars with Padmasree Warrior, Virtual Reality with Eric Darnell, AI with Yann LeCun, and more. Now, we’re getting ready for another incredible meeting of the minds, as Sebastian visits Jamie Hyneman, former host of Mythbusters and the owner of M5 Industries, to discuss the past, present, and especially the future of Robotics.
We are in the midst of an historic transformation, and the vast field of robotics is having an impact unlike any other emerging technology. Autonomous robots are contributing to increases in productivity, safety, and efficiency in so many fields—healthcare, agriculture, manufacturing, construction, and transportation, to name just a few. As we assign more and more of our repetitive tasks to robots, we are being liberated to pursue more creative, ambitious, and intellectual achievements.
The Udacity Robotics Nanodegree Program
We are so excited today to announce our new Robotics Nanodegree program. In partnership with Electric Movement, we have built the ideal program to train the next generation of engineers who are going to redefine the way we live and work.
