On 18 August 2017, UNIMY held an insightful meeting with Roboprenur Sdn Bhd where both parties agreed to sign a memorandum of collaboration to set up UNIMY’s first AI and robotic lab in Cyberjaya under the Futurise Project – the Gobal Intelligent Hub.
The meeting was attended by Dr. Hanafiah Yusoof, Founder of Robopreneur; UNIMY Vice Chancellor Prof Datuk Dr. Khairuddin Abdul Hamid, and fellow UNIMY deans. The collaboration will be led by Dr. Norshuhani Zamin.
Also during the meeting, we were introduced to a NAO humanoid robot
created by Aldebaran Robotics. This 58cm tall humanoid robot is a completely programmable, autonomous and interactive robot used for research and education around the world in prestigious universities and research institutions. The robot moves, recognises, hears, speaks and understands human emotions. To learn more about NAO, check it out here
