Forbes Takes a Close Look at the Future of Robotics
Forbes on Robotics
A major 8-part series trumpets the “New Robotics” and where it’s headed
By RBR Staff

When a major business publication puts out an occasional article pitching its readers on the advent of robotics, it’s cause for celebration for those of us who live and breathe robotics on a daily basis.

We at Robotics Business Review feel the world is finally listening—bit by bit, one article at a time—to the drumbeat of a new paradigm that is beginning to and will forever change our lives, the way we work, and the way we perceive and think about work.

And that it’ll be a good thing—and not the feared, job-stealing rampage that haunts the back of everyone’s mind when it comes to us and robots and the future.

With that in mind, our sense of euphoria gets really pumped when a powerful business voice like Forbes cranks out an 8-part series on robotics—“The Future of Robotics, The Next 20 Years.” Awesome!

Forbes’ Jennifer Hicks, who writes about robotics, science, green and mobile technology, will honcho the series.

We at Robotics Business Review will bring you our usual play-by-play on the 8-part look at robotics, plus industry reaction to the series as well as analysis from our staff and that of our contributing editorial experts. 

Here’s Jennifer’s intro: “Over the next eight weeks, this column will look at the people, investors and trends that will take us down a new path – focused robotics, the “toyification” of robotics and the practical side of robotics that will enrich our lives.”

RoboBusiness 2012: a taste of real-world robotics


If your interest in robotics gets a bit piqued with the Forbes’ series and you’d like more, like maybe an in-person, first-hand feel for the world of robotics and its future in action, take a peek at what RoboBusiness 2012 has on hand this October in Pittsburgh. It’s nothing short of a blockbuster! Just peruse its agenda for a moment and you’ll get the picture.

See what I mean?
