Talk on Fusion of Hard and Soft Control Strategies for a Smart Prosthetic Robotic Hand

Prof. Desineni Subbaram Naidu

A talk on “Fusion of Hard and Soft (AI) Control Strategies for a Smart Prosthetic/Robotic Hand” will be delivered by Prof. Desineni Subbaram Naidu, Chair Professor of Electrical Engineering, University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD),USA, on 13 June 2019 (Thursday) from 13:00 – 15:00 hours in Room 106, ISE Chalermprakiat Building, Asian Institute of Technology (AIT).

Abstract:

There are now over 20 million people in the world with missing limbs resulting from combat and non-combat operations and by 2050 there will be 50 million amputees all over the world. The availability of artificial limbs will help these people to lead a better normal life. The overall goal of the research on Prosthetic Hand Technology is to develop a smart prosthetic hand using intelligent strategies for electromyographic (EMG) signal extraction, analysis, identification, kinematic synthesis, and embedded hierarchical real-time systems and control by fusion of soft computing and hard computing techniques.

Brief Bio Data:

Prof. Desineni “Subbaram” Naidu is a Minnesota Power Jack Rowe endowed chair professor of Electrical Engineering, University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD). Professor Naidu received twice the Senior National Research Council (NRC) Associateship award from the US National Academy of Sciences (NAS), and is an elected (1995) (now Life) Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) and an elected (2003) Fellow of the World Innovation Foundation, UK. He received MTech and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering (with specialization in Control Systems Engineering), from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kharagpur, INDIA. He also delivered a TED Talk entitled, 3-D Printed Prosthetic Hand for the World for TEDxMinneapolis, Minneapolis, MN, USA at Tedd Mann Concert Hall, “a world-class concert auditorium”, located on West Campus of University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, USA, during the annual IN SIGHT event scheduled on Friday, August 12, 2016 and more.
