Next Generation Robotics

How AI is changing the business model for mass adoptions of robotics


The past few years have seen significant improvements in ease of adoption of robots with the introduction of collaborative robots, low-cost easy-to-use drones, and level 3 autonomous vehicles. In parallel, low-cost 3D machine vision systems and widely available deep learning AI toolsets have been adopted in the enterprise. The next wave of robotics will be driven by the integration of these 3 technologies to reduce the cost and time-to-market of robotic systems by an order of magnitude or more. This in turn is changing the business model enabling solutions like robots-as-a-service or build-to-order robots.


This program will feature a Keynote Presentation and Panel Discussion to highlight the landscape of upcoming opportunities and provide advice on growing a startup company in the field.
