emergence of robots


Intelligent machines were once the focus of Sci Fi and Hollywood. However, now they are becoming a reality. What are they capable of? How might they change how we work? Can we trust them? are serious questions. During this discovery day we shall show how collaboration with intelligent machines might work with hands on demonstrations. We shall also examine the challenges of machine interaction informed by state of the art of research in social and developmental robotics. Find out what robotics might mean for your business in the future – when the robots leave the factory floor.
