ACROSS researchers have teamed up with child behavior experts from the Faculty of Education and Rehabilitation Sciences to work on a novel autism diagnostics protocol using Nao robots. Although still in its initial phase, the project has gathered significant media attention. Most major Croatian newspapers, news portals, TV and radio stations, such as Jutarnji list, tportal, Nova TV, 24sata and Hrvatski radio, as well as several international media houses such as Euronews, Inventor Spot, Radio Free Europe and West have reported on this story.

The students were also challenged to a series of tic-tac-toe duels. The final score was in favor of humans, but the robots are catching up fast!

ACROSS Workshop at the Science Festival

LARICS team of 7 people and 5 NAO robots held a workshop at the Technical Museum as a part of Science Festival 2013. Workshop named „Humanoid robots – partners in work and play“ was organized by Professor Zdenko Kovacic, Damjan Miklic and Frano Petric, with help from Anja Babic, Tamara Petrovic, Kruno Hrvatinic and Mihael Mercvajler. While Anja, Tamara and Kruno demonstrated some of the built-in functionalities of NAO robots, Damjan and Frano assisted two of our NAOs to display their skills in playing the tic-tac-toe game, which attracted a lot of attention from mainly young visitors. Mihael was also very busy successfully demonstrating his interesting work on teaching a NAO robot to read. We had a lot of fun and hope that our visitors enjoyed the workshop too. Album with photos from the workshop can be seen on the Facebook page of Science Festival. We will be back next year, see you again at the Science Festival 2014.

International Conference “Clusters for Innovation and Growth in the Republic of Croatia” was held in Zagreb on 18th April within the framework of the IPA IIIc project “Support to Clusters Development”. The overall objective of the project is to enhance the competitiveness of the Croatian economy through improved quality and mechanisms of support available to investors and SMEs at national as well as regional level.

The Conference demonstrated recent progress in cluster development in Croatia and presented proposed policy initiatives. Key members of the cluster community discussed how better use of ‘’clustering’’ by triple helix partners can contribute to the development of new enterprises, greater levels of technology, increased employment and the development of new export markets for Croatian products.

Professor Vedran Bilas, WP6 leader, presented UNIZG-FER interaction with industry and ACROSS’s activities in the regional development with emphases on the research driven clusters.

Colloqia details
Title Lyapunov theory in analysis of partial differential equations
Speaker Dr. sc. Mario Bukal
Date 18.07.2012. 16:00 - 16:40
Location Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, C-IX-02 

 

The colloquia presented the state of the art analysis of nonlinear evolution equations which employs the so-called entropy production inequalities. They reflect the dissipation or stability property of certain functionals (entropies) along the sought solutions, and give rise to desired a priori estimates. These techniques resemble the Lyapunov stability theory for dynamical systems and the analogy between these two subjects was outlined.
