RoboUniverse Conference & Expo - Seoul - Day 1 - Thursday, June 28th, 2018
The talk will touch briefly on Promus Ventures and the various Promus portfolio companies in emerging/frontier technology areas like robotics. This will lead into an overview of venture capital investment trends, especially in frontier technology and robotics. We'll finish by discussing the accelerating pace of technology, and what this means for some of these areas in frontier tech, and talk about what our team thinks is exciting and worth tracking.
In this session, attendees will learn how the latest AI and machine learning software and hardware technologies and techniques are currently being employed in ground based, aerial and maritime systems to make robots more intelligent and functional. Emerging commercial opportunities will be highlighted, including in industrial, mobile service, drones, home care, social, and many more robots. The talk will cover Research and Technological Trends in Ambient Intelligence and Robotics.
This talk will address the how and why of robots in healthcare, particularly when it comes to robots that interact with patients. Dr. Kidd will give an overview of the types of robots that are either in use in healthcare or will be soon, talk about the rationale for why robots make sense in long-term interaction with patients, and illustrate with a successful case study from his work at the MIT Media Lab through his current company, Catalia Health.
This talk will address how robotics and intelligent systems are helping to achieve improvement in healthcare, both at home as well as in the hospital or clinic. This includes painless medical follow-up as well as seamless interconnection between healthcare systems & organizations and the home. Two major projects from Arabic Robotics will be discussed, including RemoRobo, for home use, and the RoboHospital system, for professional healthcare settings. Also, to be discussed are the connections and opportunities between East and West in the Robotics and AI field, including market needs and manufacturers' capabilities, as relates to the Middle East and beyond.
This panel will present technology and business experts who will illuminate the growing field of wearable robotics systems for use in worker safety, physical rehabilitation and recreational applications. Panel experts comprise a well-rounded group of technology developers, business leaders and venture capitalists all of whom are seeking to grow these technologies.
RoboUniverse Conference & Expo - Seoul - Day 2 - Friday, June 29th, 2018
Today most commercial drones require human pilots who are slow, complex to organize and bear high costs. To solve this problem since yr. 2014 enterprises started developing autonomous systems that do not require human pilots but autonomous drone charging stations. Developing, testing, integrating, deploying, maintaining and servicing a drone charging infrastructure is not in their interest but their solutions cannot work without it. Skysense projects develop and build the first autonomous Drone Infrastructure, based on proprietary technology, enabling businesses to deploy drones at scale, without human intervention.
As the field of robotics and drones grows, the need for more talented workers in these areas increases as well. One way to address the shortage of talent as well as expand access to these new technologies is to engage not only men, but women as well. The Girls Art Project, a girls creator community of robotics, is already running in 2 cities in Japan, with many more to come. We'll talk about new approaches to inclusively engaging the community and enabling them to realize their robotics ideas through using robot kits, 3D CAD, and VR home robot design simulation tools.
