We all want a home robot but when it comes to real commercial applications, what's ready and what's still 5 or 10 years away? What are the technological roadblocks facing social robotics and what approaches is the industry taking to solve them? We ask a panel of industry experts to tell us about the state of the art in robotics, and where to look for new market opportunities.
Silicon Valley Robotics is the not-for-profit industry group supporting innovation and commercialization of robotics technologies. As these salons are usually sell out events, we can offer full refunds for tickets up to one week prior to the event.
