Organized by the Norman Foster Foundation, Anna Dyson, Founding Director at Yale CEA gave a keynote at the third edition of the Robotics 2019 Public Debates in Madrid.
A broad selection of members from the Academic Body were invited to participate, providing a comprehensive vision for the future of computational design and robotic fabrication. The Public Debates were carried out in two blocks, each consisting in a series of keynotes and brief debates between their speakers, followed by a questions-and-answers session that was open to the audience.
The first block included an introduction by Xavier De Kestelier related to the principle topics seen in the atelier, after which Adrian Bowyer and Manuel Jiménez García were able to speak, prior to engaging in the first debate. In the second block, Anna Dyson, Philip Beesley and Claudia Pasquero gave their keynotes, proceeding afterwards with the second debate.
