Ruth Schulz is a cognitive scientist and AI / ML / Robotics enthusiast who believes that technology should work for people in their everyday lives

Her study, research, and work to date has had two main focuses: developments that enable technology to be used intuitively and developments that allow technology to work with the existing infrastructure

She is currently an AI Fellow at Insight Data Science and is looking for a position that uses skills developed over years of teaching, presenting research, learning about robotics and machine learning, and developing more interesting behaviors for robots.

From 2016 to 2018 she worked in the Machine Learning and Robotics Lab at the University of Stuttgart where she co-lectured the Practical Course Robotics, tutored Introduction to Robotics, and explored human-robot interaction for collaborative table-top tasks

From 2014 to 2016 she worked on Human Cues for Robot Navigation at Queensland University of Technology

In 2015, she taught part of the Microprocessors and Digital Systems course at Queensland University of Technology

In 2013, she taught half of the Introduction to Robotics course at Queensland University of Technology and helped to organise the QUT SEF Showcases for final year students completing capstone projects in Engineering, IT, and Games

She was involved in the Museum Telepresence Robot in the ICT Centre at CSIRO, which has allowed students from around Australia to remotely visit the National Museum of Australia in Canberra

While based in the School of ITEE at The University of Queensland, Ruth was involved in the Lingodroids project developing language learning robots that constructed shared lexicons

Ruth taught the Artificial Intelligence course at The University of Queensland for several years
