6:45pm Reception / 7:30pm Program Begins
IDEAS Campus

Robotics is on the cusp of transforming practices and capabilities across a huge range of creative endeavors.  This technological leap, driven in part by improvement in mechanical capabilities, is primarily the result of translating a formerly inaccessible and expert programming experience into a set of intuitive human interfaces bringing the power of robotics to non-roboticists. Equipped with a spectacularly diverse new tool, flexible but precise control over movement, creative leaders across the planet are challenging our notion of what is possible.

Tobias Kinnebrew, Director of Product Strategy

Tobias Kinnebrew is director of product strategy at Bot & Dolly, a design and engineering studio that specializes in automation, robotics, and filmmaking. Most recently, B&D's robotically operated camera work can be seen in the feature filmGRAVITY. At the core of their technology is an integrated software/hardware platform that provides a set of intuitive interfaces that brings the power of working with robotics to non-roboticists. For this talk, Kinnebrew will discuss how robotics is on the cusp of transforming a broad range of creative platforms.

Bot and Dolly is a design and engineering studio that specializes in automation, robotics, and filmmaking. It's our mission to advance motion control and automation as a creative medium, and build world-class tools that enable others to do the same. At the core of our technology is an integrated software/hardware platform that provides precise and expressive control of 6-axis industrial robots.  We dream about where they'll be used next.

The IDEAS Lecture Series charts a dynamic new future for architecture by engaging speakers from a broad range of disciplines. The series looks beyond the field's traditional boundaries and explores topics arising from unexpected quarters—entertainment, automotive, aerospace, and tech industries—in order to explore rapidly emerging new technologies, possibilities for interdisciplinary growth, and the role of Los Angeles in the evolution of architecture. The Architecture and Urban Design IDEAS Lecture Series is generously supported by Paul and Herta Amir.
