We are pleased to announce that Ana MacIntosh will be speaking at the 2019 Lloyd's Register Foundation International Conference.
Dr Ana MacIntosh manages the £12m Assuring Autonomy International Programme supported by the Lloyd’s Register Foundation and the University of York. Prior to joining the University of York, she established and managed Sheffield Robotics, one of the UK’s leading robotics research institutes, and she is a strong advocate for working across the boundaries of traditional disciplines.
Ana studied materials engineering and completed a PhD investigating the potential for using spider silk as a scaffold for tissue engineering, before working in project management and business development for organisations ranging from a micro-SME to a network of 11 universities.
The Assuring Autonomy International Programme is addressing the global challenges of assuring the safety of robotics and autonomous systems, and the team works with international stakeholders to support the safe adoption of these new technologies.
