The Buffalo News reported on Yubie, the robotic dog the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences recently acquired as a learning and research platform that will enable faculty and students to explore new frontiers in robotics, autonomous vehicles, computer science, artificial intelligence and other fields.

“Part of Yubie’s purpose is not just research, but also education and how we think about and react to robots,” said Karthik Dantu, associate professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering.

Dave Doermann, director of UB’s Institute for Artificial Intelligence and Data Science, called Yubie “a magnet that brings people together. It makes people realize we are doing really cool stuff and teaching them that there are a lot of good things that can be done with these technologies.”
