RoboBusiness will take place October 18-19 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Founded in 2004, RoboBusiness is the world’s premier robotics business development event. This provides the global robotics industry with a valuable opportunity to network, share best practices and uncover new opportunities to drive robotics innovation forward.
RoboBusiness keynote speakers include:
State of the Humanoid Robot
Step into the future as this main panel explores the incredible progress and humanoid landscape of today. Humanoids have historically been relegated to robotics research labs to help push the boundaries of legged locomotion and control systems. However, the tides are changing, and this panel will explore the technological breakthroughs that propelled humanoids into the real world. Get first-hand insight into the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead and discover which industries are ready to be early adopters of these extraordinary creations.
– Jonathan Hurst, Co-Founder & Chief Robot Officer, Agility Robotics
– Jeff Cardenas, Co-Founder & CEO, Apptronik
– Geordie Rose, Co-Founder & CEO, Sanctuary
Robotics Helps Feed the World
Speaker: Sarah Schinkkel, Director of New Technologies, John Deere
Farmers face a major challenge: feeding a growing population with less land, labor and resources. The world population is expected to reach nearly 10 billion by 2050, increasing global food demand by 50%. However, employment of agricultural workers as a whole is projected to grow by only 1% in 2029, slower than the average for all occupations. Advanced robotics is critical to helping farmers leverage their limited workforce and perform the right tasks at scale. Robotics is also the key to bringing autonomy and automation to agriculture. Today, farmers use highly automated machines to prepare soil, plant, spray and harvest. With continuous robotic innovation, farmers can perform tasks faster and with fewer resources to provide our world with the food, fuel and fiber it needs. This presentation will explore the value that robotics brings to agriculture and what other industries can learn from its intended use cases in agriculture.
The Impact of Generative AI on Robotics
Generative AI is revolutionizing the software industry, but how can this breakthrough apply to robotics? This premier panel of robotics industry leaders will discuss the application of Large Language Models (LLM) and text generation applications to robotics. It will also explore the fundamental ways in which generative AI can be applied to robotics design, model training, simulation, control algorithms and product commercialization.
– Amit Goel, Director of Product Management, NVIDIA
– Ken Goldberg, William S. Floyd Jr Distinguished Chair in Engineering, UC Berkeley
– Ted Larson, CEO, OLogic
– Jeff Linnell, Founder & CEO, Foreman
– Pras Velegapudi, VP of Innovation, Agility Robotics
How Intuitive Is It To Distance From Competitors
Speaker: Dave Rosa, President, Intuitive
The surgical robotics pioneer Intuitive surpassed competitors in the industry by doubling down on its multi-port Da Vinci Robot while also introducing new robotics technology to fight deadly diseases. In this interview, we’ll hear how the company built its engineering and sales teams to bring its systems to more hospitals in the US and abroad.
Beyond keynotes and conference agendas, RoboBusiness will provide attendees with more than 100 exhibitors and exhibit floor demos, networking receptions and more. you can check current speaker listwhich will be added more, here.
That Pitchfire Startup Competition will be held again at RoboBusiness. During the competition, five robotics startups gave five-minute presentations to compete for a $5,000 first-place prize and invaluable feedback from industry investors.
RoboBusiness will be co-located with the Field Robotics Engineering Forum, a two-track conference designed to educate engineers, business professionals and others on how to develop and successfully deploy the next generation of field robots for large, outdoor, dynamic environment operations. environment.
Also co-located with RoboBusiness is DeviceTalks West, the premier industry event for medical technology professionals, currently in its ninth year. Both events attract engineering and business professionals from diverse health and medical technology backgrounds.
