   October 20, 2014,IEEE life fellow, Professor William Levine from University of Maryland at College Park spent ten day visit at Chongqing Institutes of Green and Intelligent Technology (CIGIT) Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) where he was working with Professor Yao Li, his former Ph.D. student now on the faculty at CAS and also Director of the Center for Robotics and Intelligent Machines. The new center focuses on assistive robotics with medical applications, including surgical robots, haptics, prosthesis, and human interactive robotics. The medical collaborator of CIGIT is the China Southwest Hospital, the pioneer of robotic surgery in the country, which is aiming to move forward with more robotic technology through a new translational medicine center with the Chinese Academy of Science.  The new institute is delighted to have Dr. Levine’s guidance and comments as a leading expert in this field.  

   Professor Levine is currently involved in various robotic projects at the University of Maryland and he is part of the international collaboration program with CAS, which include experts from Stanford University, University of Southern California (USC), and University of California Los Angeles (UCLA). “Biomechanics, Modeling and Control” was the series key-note lecture that Professor Levine gave to CIGIT in English with simultaneous translation by Professor Li. While in China Professor Levine has had intensive discussions with Dr. Peiwu Yu from Southwest China Hospital, the leading expert on robotic surgery in China and Dr. Rahman Davoodi at CAS who is a former USC research professor.   

   Professor Levine received his Bachelor's, Master's and Ph. D. degrees from MIT. He is currently Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Maryland, College Park. Throughout his career he has specialized in the design and analysis of control systems and related problems in estimation, filtering, and system modeling.
