Ebooks on Robotics: Overviews

The JPL Library has a good collection of electronic books on robotics.  In this post, we have listed selected titles with links to two categories within the Robotics: general overviews and social aspects.  All ebooks can be accessed and downloaded from within the JPL network. They can then be transferred to mobile devices for later reading. Our license with the publishers specifies that ebooks are for individual use, and they cannot be re-distributed to others. If you would like to recommend certain books to your colleagues, please ask them to access their own copy.

Feb 26, 11:30-12:30, Innovation in 3D Printing

‘Innovation in 3-D printing: A review of the recent Consumer Electronics Show’

JPL materials scientist and Caltech visiting associate Doug Hofmann will speak Thursday, Feb. 26 
from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Hub, 111-104.

3-D printing is one of the largest key disrupters in the current information technology decade and will continue to be for years to come. The 2015 Consumer Electronics Show featured the largest-ever display of 3-D printing technologies aimed mainly at consumers or small companies.

Hofmann will focus on the emerging technologies related to 3-D printing that were displayed and how they might affect JPL’s near-term needs. The talk will also feature some of the 3-D printing work that is already being done at JPL.

The workshop is part of the Learn, Experience, and Participate (LEAP) Innovation series sponsored by the Office of the CIO.

Jan 29, 11:30-12:30, TED Talk Thursday

TED Talk Thursday is starting again in 2015! Here are a few frequently asked questions about TED and TED Talk Thursday.

Q: What is TED? What are TED Talks?

A: TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. TED Talks are short (usually less than 18 minutes), powerful presentations.

Q: What is TED Talk Thursday?

A: The JPL Library sponsors this event. Each month on a Thursday lunch time at the Hub, a host select three to four TED Talks to show, and moderates discussions related to any of the Talks. The whole event will last less than 60 minutes, and everyone at JPL is welcome to attend.

Q: Who is the host for the monthly presentations?

A: Any JPLer can be a host for the TED Talk Thursday. All one needs is the desire to share interesting presentations to others, and there is no need to be expert in the topic of the presentations.  Please contact Dudee Chiang (dudee.chiang@jpl.nasa.gov) at JPL Library for more details.

Q: What if I am interested in doing a TED-Talk like presentation? Can I do that at the Hub?

A: Sure, please contact Dudee to set up your presentation.

Q: Since the TED Talks are videos accessible from anywhere, why can’t I watch them from my office?

A: The idea of TED Talk Thursday is to have face-to-face meeting with other JPLers outside of your immediate work group. You never know what new ideas may come out of the encounters.

Q: Since it will be lunch time, can I eat at the Hub?

A: Sure.
