Will you be able to build your next robot at home from parts made on a 3D printer? Will a DARPA contest give birth to a new generation of humanoid rescue or helper robots? And when did Google become a robotics company, anyway?
Robots have always excelled at dull, dirty, and dangerous jobs like building cars, finding nuclear-reactor leaks, or exploring the oceans and planets, but now they’re turning up in all sorts of new and surprising places, and being groomed to work right alongside humans. They’re driving on our highways, moving medical supplies, connecting remote workplaces, and even teaching our children. If the next big frontier for robots is the home, the hospital, or the classroom, what does that mean for the businesses buying robots, the people working with them, and the inventors building them?
At Xconomy’s third annual robotics forum—hosted by SRI International during National Robotics Week—we’ll grapple with the social, economic, and entrepreneurial questions arising as the robotics revolution hits home.
