This week is perspective week here at BTRtoday. We could all use a new way of looking at the world, so today’s guests are here to show us some vantage points that range from the very small to the vast and interconnected.
We’ll talk with Shuguang Li, a postdoc at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and one of the researchers who helped develop a small ingestible origami robot that can unfold itself from a swallowed capsule. He is joined in his work by Steven Guitron, a masters student in the department of mechanical engineering.
For our Third Eye perspective into the question this week we’ll wrap it up by talking with Dr. Alan Beck, director of the Center for the Human-Animal Bond, School of Veterinary Medicine at Purdue University about bonding with animals.
