    Congnitive Sciences Track

    Robotics is not just for the factory floor anymore. It’s moving into the executive suites. Sessions in the Cognitive science track provide applications for building the “brains” of future robotic applications and involve emerging mathematical algorithms to not only solve common business problems, but also detect and predict future patterns. Cognitive Science is the interdisciplinary scientific study and simulation of the mind and its processes. The collective research areas and applications involve a combination of disciplines including: artificial intelligence, neuroscience, psychology, linguistics, philosophy, and anthropology. These new smart, predictive analytical techniques are also known as: AI, machine learning, deep learning, knowledge engines, or neural networks.

    Scanner Track

    The IoT ecosystem for robotics helps to define and manage the distributed, collaborative world of automation. It helps to coordinate the distributed intelligence, provide synchronized movement or “swarms”, fuse the sensor data collected by a community of robots and ultimately provide a management structure for large scale robotics implementation. This track will provide insight into the leading edge management and control of large scale, multiple applications of robots and their sensory interaction with the physical world.
