Robots - The Next Wave of the Robot Revolution
Featuring: Rod Brooks
Robots are starting to have a significant impact on how goods are produced, homes are cleaned, war is waged and people are healed. There are over 130 companies in New England that are producing robots or are key suppliers to robotics companies. Our program will explore the advancing robot invasion across all of those sectors.
Our keynote address will be delivered by Rod Brooks, Founder and current CTO of iRobot and long-time Director of the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence laboratory. Rod will be joined by a panel of senior executives from five New England robotics companies.
Chris Hofmeister - CTO of Brooks Automation
Tom Fuhlbrigge - Mechatronics and Robotics Automation, ABB Robotics
Mick Mountz - CEO of Kiva Systems
Tom Ryden - CEO of North End Technologies
Debbie Theobald - CEO of Vecna Technologies
