Forget about self-driving cars; how about flying taxis? Plus, the U.S. weighs restrictions on tech trade with China, even as China continues its pursuit of AI. See all this and more in our latest roundup of global robotics developments.
In this Essential Interview, Dr. Jun Ho Oh, director of the Humanoid Research Center at KAIST and co-founder of Rainbow Robotics Co., talks about the challenges of creating a robust humanoid robot and the nascent market for commercial androids.
RPA, or robotic process automation, is coming to companies large and small, but they need to evaluate which tasks are best performed by AI and which are still best for humans to do.
Collaborative robots is important not because of cost or workforce savings but because of ease of use, noted Robotiq CEO Sam Bouchard at RoboBusiness 2017. AI and “lean robotics” practices should also help small and midsize enterprises adopt robotics, he says in this exclusive video interview.
Robotics presentations from RoboBusiness 2017, which was held in late September in Santa Clara, Calif., are now available. They provide insights into the state of autonomous systems, robotics, and AI.
Robotics, automation, and artificial intelligence will take center stage at RoboBusiness 2017, which takes place Sept. 27-28 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Here’s a guide to help organize your show.
The world’s premier automation event is an important opportunity for end users, developers, and suppliers of robotics, artificial intelligence, and unmanned systems to meet with and learn from one another.
RoboBusiness 2017 is an ideal event for attendees to learn about the growing and changing global robotics market and to build or update their own automation strategy.
At RoboBusiness 2017, the UR5 robot arm from Universal Robots will pick “widgets” out of a feeder that moves around and is dynamically tracked by the vision-guided cobot. Using a wand, attendees will be able to “tame” the robot, prompting it to avoid the wand while attempting to reach the widget.
Universal Robots will be showcasing its collaborative robotic arms at RoboBusiness 2017, including a cobot able to avoid collisions with moving objects and a startup demonstrating a UR arm for sewing during the annual Pitchfire competition.
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.
RoboBusiness 2017 will be convening in Santa Clara, Calif. on Sept. 27-28, discussing how organizations like yours can successfully build and use robotics. We’re working hard to make sure we share the best of how to advance business with automation. Why attend? Here are some reasons.
RoboBusiness 2017 is not only the best place to meet with the entire robotics and AI ecosystem; it’s also the conference that can help you maximize automation for your business. Our refocused session tracks, elite speakers, and networking opportunities are worth making plans for Sept. 27 and 28 in Santa Clara, Calif.
The industrial automation market in North America grew at a strong rate in the first half of 2017, said the Association for Advancing Automation. While much of was in automotive manufacturing, A3 noted that robotics is paralleling employment and help the U.S. economy.
RoboBusiness speaker Daniel Theobald, co-founder and chief innovation officer of Vecna, says until recently, large-scale use of mobile robotics in industry was still aspirational. But now, given increasing consumer expectations and global competition, “automate or die” is becoming an accepted idea in business.
Daniel Theobald has been working on robots since the 1970s, and Vecna is a top robotics company in Massachusetts. He gives a preview of the topics he’ll be discussing at RoboBusiness 2017.
