Xconomy Forum: Robo Madness 2017— A.I. Gets Real

Robotics and artificial intelligence have gone mainstream, with major consequences for business and society. From warehouse automation and self-driving vehicles to smart home assistants and drones, robotic technologies are poised to transform daily life and work. But they’re also raising questions about A.I. ethics, the future of jobs, and the competitive landscape in technology.

How will robotics and A.I. reshape the economy and create new opportunities (and challenges) across industries? Who are the hottest companies that will compete with the likes of Google, Amazon, and Uber to create the future? And what are New England innovators doing to strengthen the local cluster and help lead the national discussion? At our third annual robotics and A.I. conference in Boston, we’ll address these questions, and much more, in a series of interactive talks, panels, and demos.
