Event Details

For the Love of RobotsTM

Robots and artificial intelligence are in the news on a daily basis. Industrial robots are being widely used in manufacturing settings. As a society, we are still in the early stages of adoption of ‘service’ robots for office, business and retail purposes. Whether you are eager to engage with robots or concerned about their likely impact on business and society, there can be no doubt that service robots are coming. If you are curious to know “What can they do?” or if you are asking “Is my company ready for robot co-workers?”, this presentation is for you.
