Description

Are we bound for the Jetsons or Inferno? We have seen autonomous robots in manufacturing for many years and are now beginning to see robots emerging in airports as kiosks, service industry attendants, and in-home personal assistants. While these assistants are very helpful there are serious concerns about loss of manual labor jobs or potentially unintended harmful actions. Our panel of experts will discuss the opportunities and potential concerns resulting from the proliferation of autonomous intelligent robots.  Please join us for demos and a lively discussion of the future!
