Robotics Summit & Expo Keynotes
Concept to Actuality: Commercializing Robotics Applied sciences
Howie Choset, Professor of Robotics, Carnegie Mellon College
Could 10: 8:45 AM – 9:30 AM
Turning a know-how developed inside a lab right into a profitable robotics firm is not any straightforward job. Howie Choset has carried out this a number of occasions with corporations corresponding to Medrobotics (surgical robots), Hebi Robotics (modular robots) and Bito Robotics (robotic software program). Choset will share insights in regards to the robotics startups he based and finest practices for taking technological innovation from an concept to actuality.
Inside Motional’s Autonomous Automobile Journey
Laura Main, CTO, Motional
Could 10: 10:45 AM – 11:30 AM
Laura Main will element the key technical challenges concerned with growing autonomous autos. She may even present updates on current deployments and what the longer term holds for autonomous autos. Motional and Uber lately launched their public robotaxi service in Las Vegas.
Growing Robots for Ultimate Frontiers
Nicolaus Radford, Founder & CEO, Nauticus Robotics
Could 11: 9 AM – 9:45 AM
House is often known as the “remaining frontier.” However Nicolaus Radford and the crew at Nauticus Robotics consider the world’s oceans are of the utmost near-term precedence (and largely unexplored) remaining frontier. Based by former NASA engineers, Nauticus is main the way in which by growing novel ocean robotic platforms for unprecedented methods of working in and exploring the aquatic area, whereas difficult the less-than-desirable and archaic paradigm of the legacy business. The corporate’s imaginative and prescient is to develop into essentially the most impactful ocean robotics firm and to disrupt the present ocean providers paradigm via the mixing of autonomous robotic applied sciences. The deep sea is huge, filled with potential, and but stays largely as uncharted as area itself – and Nauticus is on the forefront of unlocking its prospects.
This keynote will chart Radford’s journey from growing humanoid robotics for area and leveraging that have to kind Nauticus and its revolutionary ocean robotics portfolio. His work at NASA closely influenced the developments at Nauticus as the corporate develops robots able to aiding in nationwide safety, repairing oil pipelines, and inspecting windfarms — all whereas considerably decreasing emissions and hazards to human counterparts. Throughout his keynote, Radford will present insights about each environments, talk about the enterprise and know-how of Nauticus’ present work and clarify his imaginative and prescient for the way forward for ocean know-how and robotics.
The Way forward for Surgical Robotics
Martin Buehler, International Head of Robotics R&D, Johnson & Johnson MedTech
Could 11: 10 AM – 10:45 AM
Johnson & Johnson, one of many world’s main healthcare corporations, offers an inside have a look at the end-to-end growth of its Monarch and Ottava robotics platforms, in addition to technique and innovation cadence throughout surgical robotics for MedTech.
The Subsequent Decade in Robotics
Marc Raibert, Government Director, The AI Institute
Could 11: 4 PM – 4:45 PM
This fireplace chat with Marc Raibert will talk about alternatives for the robotics business and crucial and troublesome challenges dealing with the creation of superior robots. It should additionally describe how the brand new Boston Dynamics AI Institute is pushing the boundaries of technological innovation to resolve these challenges.
