Boston's Robotics Revolution

  • CIC Cambridge 1 Broadway, 5th floor Cambridge, MA, 02142 United States (map)

Robots coupled with AI are already permeating our lives in a variety of ways: from consumer robots that clean our houses to industrial robots that make our cars; from robots that take care of our elderly to drones that fight our wars. Should we fear them? Probably not. But we need to better understand their impact on our work and future.

Boston is the second fastest growing robotics technology cluster in the US. Join us for an afternoon with a panel of leading experts and robotics practitioners who will educate you on the state of the technology and what the future holds.

Panelists:

  1. Tom Ryden, Executive Director, MassRobotics

  2. Sangbae Kim, Director of the Biomimetic Robotics Laboratory and Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering, MIT.

  3. Shiraj Sen, Lead scientist, GE Global Research, GE Robotics

  4. Krishna Srikrishna, Sr. Member of Technical Staff, iRobot

  5. Vivek Badami, Consulting Engineer at General Electric (Panel Moderator)
