What and Where are the Robotunities?

9:00 – 11:30 AM Program
 
Robots impact our lives in diverse ways, already automating distribution, cleaning our floors, swarm-tending crops, assisting the disabled, probing hazardous environments and myriad other applications from security scrutiny to manufacturing our cars and, perhaps, driving them. What underlies the ever-increasing deployments? What do these many “roboticisms” have in common? What’s next?
Underlying the answers is that robots must perceive their environment and decide how to respond, so both computer vision and the new AI’s deep learning neural nets are pervasive and integral elements of robotics.  Against that substrate then, how does an entrepreneur transform a concept for a new robotic application into a viable start up that gains traction? Drawing on their diverse backgrounds, today’s speakers will offer insights to illuminate the answer.

ROBOTS, COMPUTER VISION AND DEEP AI

Transforming the future with innovation today: what and where are the robotunities?

 

Robots impact our lives in diverse ways, already automating distribution, cleaning our floors, swarm-tending crops, assisting the disabled, probing hazardous environments and myriad other applications from security scrutiny to manufacturing our cars and, perhaps, driving them. What underlies the ever-increasing deployments? What do these many “roboticisms” have in common? What’s next?

Underlying the answers is that robots must perceive their environment and decide how to respond, so both computer vision and the new AI’s deep learning neural nets are pervasive and integral elements of robotics.  Against that substrate then, how does an entrepreneur transform a concept for a new robotic application into a viable start up that gains traction? Drawing on  their diverse backgrounds, today’s speakers will offer insights to illuminate the answer.
