It’s a critical time for robotics and artificial-intelligence companies. While iRobot paved the way for commercial robots, tech giants like Google, Amazon, and Facebook are harnessing the technology in new ways. From self-driving cars to automated warehouses to drone-delivery systems, machines that move and think could remake some of the world’s biggest industries. Meanwhile, startups and investors are trying to outmaneuver the big boys with cheaper, more practical alternatives, while blazing some entirely new trails in fields such as healthcare, education, public services, and smart homes. How will smarter and more capable robots impact human jobs and society? Who will emerge as the preeminent robot company of this era? And what should the New England robotics community do to press its advantage in technology and talent? Please join us at this off-the-record private dinner reserved for 25 of the region’s top CEO and investors.
