Course Title: S031 Machine Intelligence and Robotics

Duration: 2020.7.9-2020.7.31( 3 weeks) 

Campus: Minhang


Course Description

This course, Machine Intelligence and Robotics, aims for providing both overview and practice techniques for artificial intelligence, specifically its applications on robotics, as well as on manufacturing process. In this course, theory and methods for machine learning, robotics, and networks with multi-agents will be given. Together with practical courses on industrial automation systems programming and intelligent robotics, the students could gain a range of theoretical and practical skills necessary to develop real intelligent systems. The summer course will provide a good opportunity to know people working in the field, to meet prominent researchers, share best practices and to establish contacts through social interactions that may lead to research collaborations in the future.



  • The courses will be given by researchers from interdisciplines. All the lectures hold Ph.D. degree from universities abroad or have more than 3 years’ working experience abroad. External lectures from famous institutes will be involved as well.

  • The students will have the chance to study theoretical knowledge as well as to apply algorithms to real systems;

  • Hand-on labs of programming industrial control systems and robotics, including Institute of Pattern Recognition and Image Processing, Autonomous Robot Lab, Center for Intelligent Wireless Networking, all of which belong to the Key Laboratory of Ministry of Education. The students will explore these top Chinese labs by visiting, colloquia, and potential joint projects.

  • Tours for intelligent industrial companies in Shanghai, including Tencent, Rockwell Automation, Siemens AG, Huawei, and Hikvision, which cover artificial intelligence and applications in modern industry.
