Welcome to the new year (2011). My old blog was at http://www.cc.gatech.edu/~hic/Georgia-HomePage/Blog/Blog.html using iWeb from Apple. Great package to get you started with blogging, but after a while is it clear that the growth capabilities are fairly limited. Also you have to do all your blogging within iWeb. I travel a far bit and it is then convenient to be able to blog using a number of different platforms from PC/Mac, phone, tablet, netbook, not to mention the occasional web cafe. Most of these do not directly support iWeb. I am thus turning back to my old platform (wordpress).

My blog will continue to circulate around robots, photography, and travel. My main topics will likely be robotics. I have had the privilege to be a core member of the team that has pushed for a new national initiative in robotics. A significant group of people formulated a national roadmap for robotics sponsored by the CCC. The roadmap was presented to Congress May 2009. It has been picked up by a number of agencies such as NSF, NIST, DARPA, … and there is a concerted effort through OSTP to push for an agenda. This is highly encouraging.

As a side effort we are now as a group trying to launch a community based effort to have an American Network on Robotics (AMRON) that provides support for maintenance of a research roadmap, coordination of educational initiatives, liaison with industry and resources for dissemination of information to the broader community.

    Nice to see someone else blogging on a similar subject. I’ve got your blog bookmarked! I’m not certain if you are interested in my work (focused on resonating neural networks), since you seem to be working more on the hardware side of things, but you never know. I’m blogging on http://janbogaerts.name/
    PS: you could perhaps add your blog over here: http://www.aaai.org/AITopics/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/AITopics/BlogPage
