Data Science, Robots, and Disaster Recovery

Robin Murphy has one of the coolest job titles I have ever read, Disaster Roboticist. At Texas A&M, she works on developing advanced robots for disaster recovery.

In this Ted talk, she outlines some of the capabilities of the robots and how the robots work. One quote at the end really caught my attention.

So really, “disaster robotics” is a misnomer. It’s not about the robots. It’s about the data.

The robots are collecting data and that data needs analysis!
