Looking Back to Move Forward / A Re:collection of Robotics at Carnegie Mellon
The University Libraries is pleased to present “Looking Back to Move Forward / A Re:collection of Robotics at Carnegie Mellon”, the debut exhibition in the new first-floor gallery of Hunt Library. “Looking Back to Move Forward” provides a window into the ongoing work of The Robotics Project, an interdisciplinary approach to preserving the legacy of robotics through a partnership between the University Libraries and the School of Computer Science. Through more than 40 robots and archival artifacts, the exhibition invites viewers to revisit material moments in the history of robotics and to explore a variety of research areas that CMU is known for—field robotics, artificial intelligence, human-robot interaction, and more. With personal recollections from the people who made it all happen and a look inside the process of archiving robots, this exhibition engages the ongoing interplay between the past and the future in robotics research.
