报告题目：The Entanglement of Control and IT in 21st Century: Intelligent Systems
内容简介：The presentation discusses the entanglement of control and information and communication technologies (ICT) in the 21st Century as the basis of intelligent systems. An assessment of the past is presented, discussing the profound technological changes that have taken place during the last 2 decades, especially the changes observed in manufacturing industries. The emerging paradigms of big data and cyber physical systems (CPS), supported by new disruptive advances both on software and hardware side, as well as the cross-fertilization of concepts and the amalgamation of information, communication and control technology driven approaches are pointed out to. The role of deep learning in big data and CPS is discussed. This is followed by a look at the evolution of the manufacturing paradigms, with particular emphasis on the Fourth Industrial Revolution, one of the aims of which is to introduce higher levels of machine IQ in devices. The talk closes with a consideration of the possible research directions in mechatronics and robotics as the driving forces behind intelligent systems.

报告题目：Simulation Based Medicine for Endovascular Micro Surgery
内容简介：There have been so many robotic surgery systems developed so far, one of which is the Da Vincci Robotic System that is the most successful in the business market. Most robotic surgery systems are remotely controlled devices and systems and so the quality of the surgery heavily depends on the skill of the operators. Thus simulation is so important and necessary that medical doctors can have skillful training to operate those robotic systems and to understand and make the operation with confidence.
To this purpose, there are mainly two simulation methods developed in this field so far, such as virtual reality model based and physical model based methods. There are some comparisons between them, such as advantages and dis-advantages.
We have been developing an endovascular micro surgery system and also an evaluation simulation system, whether the surgery performance is good for human doctor and/or robotics system. This simulator, Endovascular Evaluator (EVE) is made by the micro technology using the CT data of patients in the brain and other organs. It turned out to be very efficient and useful for evaluating and transferring the skill of medical doctors and also important to develop different catheter devices as well as stents and flow diverters. It can also be used for medical applications to make the aneurysm developing process scientifically clear.

报告题目：Micro Robotics Advances Life Science
内容简介：Our micro robotics covers dexterous high speed micro manipulation, micro assembly, cell characterization, and 3D cellular system construction. The basic idea is to devise and to utilize dexterous two finger micro hands, and to achieve total micro manipulation system with high speed vision and interfaces for bio applications. Our system is multi-scalable and can manipulate micro object with the size ranging from one to hundreds micron meters seamlessly. Our constant system improvement and refinement have achieved wide range of workspace with real time 3D information, simple finger setting-up procedure, fine force sensing capability as well as automated calibration, automated picking-and-placing, etc.
Based on these activities and our collaboration experiences with biologists and medical doctors we have carried out 5 year national project on “Bio Assembler” in 2011-2016, whose target is a challenge of constructing artificial 3D cellular system(tissues) in vitro. The major topics are high speed cell characterization & sorting, 3D cellular system construction, and cell functionalization analysis. Total 32 research groups joined the consortium and worked together in the internal and/or external research collaborations.
Now we are looking at further researches and developments in new bio application fields, such as causality of various stresses in differentiation, proliferation, generation, development, and disease. The mechano biology is one of the examples of such activities and currently so active in biology and medical, however, we are looking for more than that, not just limited to the mechanical matter.
