When Will the Robots Get Here: Shafeeq Rabbani at TEDxMcMasterU

Shafeeq Rabbani is an Undergraduate Engineering student of McMaster University. He is in many ways a typical Mac student; well informed of a particular challenge facing humanity and working on possible ways of finding solutions and being a part of them. Shafeeq was driven by curiosity of finding out the mechanics of how things work from an early age and exploring this curiosity, led him to study Engineering. For many years, his interest has been in the field of robotics. He, like many others in the field, is trying to answer the most common question people have about robotics, i.e. "When will the robots get here?". Like many roboticists, he was inspired into robotics by the works of others. He hopes that his TEDx talk doesn't just spread an idea, but in doing so inspires young minds to contribute to the field. "Robotics has the potential to provide solutions to many of the challenges facing planet earth" - he says. His other interests include badminton and public speaking.About TEDx:In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
