Eighty research and industry experts in robotics and industrial artificial intelligence (AI) from both sides of the Atlantic gathered last week at the Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics of the Czech Technical University in Prague (CIIRC CTU) for a US-EU workshop to discuss what will be the defining scientific and technological development for industrial manufacturing in the next decade. The event was organized in close cooperation with three world-renowned personalities, Prof. Růžena Bajcsy from UC Berkeley, Prof. Wolfgang Wahlster from DFKI and Prof. Vladimír Mařík from CIIRC CTU. On this occasion, two commemorative medals were also awarded to Prof. Růžena Bajcsy. What are the main findings that will influence the industry and what is the direction of research and development in robotics and manufacturing for the near future?
Professor Růžena Bajcsy, a legend in the field of computer sciences, a world robotics personality of Slovak origin, was awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of Žilina and a medal of the Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics of the Czech Technical University in Prague (CIIRC CTUT) for her lifelong contribution to the development of science and Czech-Slovak-American scientific relations.

Launching a balloon probe to measure the transmission of telemetry data - that was the dream of Jakub Dvořák, a student at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering at the Czech Technical University in Prague. He chose the topic of his bachelor thesis accordingly. The measurements from his probe, which ascended to an altitude of seventeen kilometres with the help of the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute, will be used by scientists to deploy 5G and 6G communication networks.
