SRI International in Menlo Park was the birthplace of the da Vinci surgical robot, which made it a natural location for Robo Madness 2014, Xconomy’s third annual Silicon Valley robotics event. Held (as always) during National Robotics Week, the forum was a celebration and exploration of entrepreneurship and technology in robotics, here in the Bay Area and around the continent.

You can also check out Elise Craig’s rundown of Robo Madness 2014 takeaways, where you’ll find quotes from our fabulous speakers and moderators, including Helen Greiner, Scott Hassan, Paolo Pirjanian, James Gosling, David Mindell, Brian Gerkey, Melonee Wise, and John Markoff.
It was a fun and informative event. We’re incredibly grateful to sponsors SRI International, Silicon Valley Bank, Intel, and RoboBusiness for their support this year—and to all of our fantastic speakers. Now, if you’ll not be needing me, I’ll close down for a while.
