Great to go back to San Fran in August for our Singularity University’s Graduate Studies Program Reunion. So proud of my classmates, their projects and how far they’ve come. Their current achievements and progress are written below along with the number of people involved enclosed in brackets.
It’s so cool to have a group of friends who are working on improving the world using exponential technologies on an international scale!
Alberto and I gave a speech about Aipoly at TEDxMelbourne, where we showcased Aipoly Vision being used via glasses.
During our summer working out of the Engineers Australia Victoria office, we had some special visitors. Minister Merlino, the Deputy Premier and Education Minister was our first visitor, in December 2015.
Following that, The Hon. Linda Dessau, the Governor of Victoria paid us a visit in our final week at those offices. We showcased all our robotic and computer vision projects.
Finally, in June, the Prime Minister’s office accepted Engineers Australia’s invitation and came to see our technology. We followed that up by visiting the Minister for Small Businesses, Minister Phil Dalidakis in late June 2016, who said he was eager to support our robots.
I spent the summer working out of the Engineers Australia Victoria office with 20 university students. As a result they put me on the front cover of their Create magazine.
I also did an interview with Audi magazine as a follow-up to being named their Scholarship recipient in 2015. http://audimagazine.com.au/post/i-robot
I did a fun radio interview with the BBC with another female engineer, Nisrine Chartouny. You can listen to it by clicking on my face below:
My cofounder in Aipoly is Italian, so we went to Italy to promote, due to popular demand, Aipoly’s availability in 7 languages - English, French, Japanese, Spanish, Italian, Arabic, and German.
We met with the President of Italy.
We appeared in a few television segments.
And in a few newspaper articles (including with Andrea Bocelli).
Italy is a beautiful country. I enjoyed eating chestnuts, zucchini pasta and fava beans!
Finally, we were on Fox News this month with one of our users Michael Moran in New York City.
