RoboBusiness U.S. is dedicated to advancing business with automation, so why should governments care? Here are four conference sessions that connect robotics and AI with the need for policy and strategy.
AI competitiveness is represented in recent moves by IBM Watson with MIT and the UAE. Also, will other countries copy proposed U.S. laws governing self-driving cars?
As Labor Day approaches, we look at how robot labor could affect clothing production, Estonia’s digital currency as an attempt to encourage automation investment, and questions about intellectual property created by AI.
Job fears are affecting government policies in the U.S., South Korea, and elsewhere, but will new regulations work? Also, the U.S. Army plans to stop using consumer drones from China-based DJI, citing cybersecurity risks.
What do China-U.S. trade tensions mean for the robotics industry? We look at this and other recent robotics developments, including international self-driving car research.
Robotic advancements are occurring worldwide on multiple fronts. From artificial intelligence creating new security challenges to robots in Japan creating new malfunction paranoia to governments restricting foreign acquisitions, the world of robotics is heating up, and security policy will need to be crafted to ensure that these new technologies are used in safe and ethical…
While robotic advancements have led to machines that can land an airplane or design and construct a building, there are some areas that still require human judgment, including labor and immigration policies.
Just as the DHS announces new security rules for U.S. airports, authorities around the world are beginning to turn to robots for airport security.
Recent advances in AI and algorithms will be bringing more of the technologies to the investment and marketing worlds, while industrial robot maker Kuka is seeking to move into the home robotics market. Meanwhile new European drone policy continues their global leadership in the field. Robotics Business Review has partnered with me to bring you…
German automation is a means of extending the country’s international influence, not just economically, but also culturally. Trade shows, robot sports, and reshoring are all part of a national strategy.
This week’s robotics advances include a new record for drone swarms, big companies like GE and Amazon are beefing up automation, and cyber security concerns.
German robots are evolving to be safer, address applications beyond manufacturing, and make reshoring easier. But what precedents are they setting for other countries’ efforts?
Government and business policies have helped German robotics be a global leader, with self-driving car laws, ethics rules, and independence from European bodies.
This week’s international AI and robotics roundup looks at the IEEE’s show in Singapore, a deal between Germany and China, and Indian drones for fighting disease.
Robot soldiers are only part of the challenges facing companies serving the race to adopt military automation. They must also protect intellectual property, comply with international regulations, and understand who may have access to their systems.
Although the U.S. is the biggest creator and user of military robotics and drones, Israel, India, and Russia are also shaping the future of defense automation, AI, and IoT.
The global AI and robotics race continues to heat up, as Chinese children grow up alongside robots, North America invests in industrial automation, and Las Vegas doubles down on cybersecurity.
Unmanned and autonomous systems have played a key role in monitoring recent migration into Europe. Thanks to emerging regulations, European drones could soon perform a wider range of functions than ensuring security.
From social robots to drones and fears of job displacement, a common theme in this week’s robotics roundup is the need for robot design to account for the human factor in user interfaces, applications, and skills retraining.
In this week’s roundup of global robotics developments, we look at Google’s self-critiquing AI, Baidu’s open-source self-driving research, and the U.S. Marine Corps’ disposable drones, among other things.
In this week’s global robotics roundup, our columnist looks at the possible impact of automation on jobs, Asian industry, and surveillance. He notes that the changes, reactions, and new uses won’t be spread evenly.
This week, we look at artificial intelligence designing drugs, the factory of the future, and border control with facial-recognition technology. Are you ready for the latest in smart machines?
Universal basic income schemes are attracting interest worldwide, but how would they affect productivity, competitiveness, and commercial success of robotics companies?
There are more global robotics developments ever week than any single person can keep track of. Fortunately, RBR and columnist Abishur Prakash have rounded up some of the recent news for you.
Is geopolitical instability the new norm? Uncertainty is generally bad for business, but military automation stands to benefit from intensifying conflict in certain parts of the world.
