Event Details

Xconomy Forum: Robots Remake the Workplace

How are robots changing the way we work and communicate? Who will be the Microsoft of robotics, bringing the technology to every business? What will the robot revolution mean for job growth (or loss)? Join us for an afternoon of demos, discovery, and discussion.

The question today isn't when robots will arrive in our offices, clinics, hospitals, farms, warehouses, and workshops—they already have. For entrepreneurs, the real opportunity now is to create robots so powerful, reliable, and affordable that every business will want one, or many. The last time hardware and software makers faced a similar market opening was in the late 1980s and early 1990s, as personal computers began to appear on every desktop. The business potential of robotics could be just as great.

For this special half-day event during National Robotics Week, we've sought out the founders and CEOs inventing real business models for the next phase of the robotics revolution—in manufacturing, health, schools, offices, energy, the home, and more—and the venture capitalists betting on their power to improve productivity and our quality of life. Meet them all at SRI International on April 11!
