Cognitive robotics, intelligent machines take center stage at Robotics Summit & Expo 2019

Robotics Summit & Expo 2019

CLEVELAND and BOSTON — Business-to-business publisher WTWH Media has announced a series of keynotes, sessions, and workshops at this year’s Robotics Summit & Expo dedicated to educating the robotics engineering community about how artificial intelligence and machine learning are making commercial and cognitive robots smarter and more useful.

Topics include decision making, object identification, vision processing, autonomous navigation, motor control, and sensor integration, as well as speech, facial, and emotion recognition. The Robotics Summit takes place June 5-6, 2019 at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston, Mass. See for more details.

“The use of AI and machine learning to improve the functionality of robotics systems is increasing dramatically,” said Dan Kara, vice president of robotics at WTWH Media. “However, the rate at which new cognitive robotics technologies and services are being introduced into the market is so rapid, it is very difficult for robotics engineers to track and understand important innovations and enablers. We are emphasizing cognitive robotics and intelligent machines at the Robotics Summit to address this critical challenge.”

Programming at the summit about cognitive robotics and intelligent machines includes the following:

  • Opening keynote: Bringing AI-Powered Robots to Life — Deepu Talla, VP and GM of Autonomous Machines, NVIDIA
  • Keynote: The Role of the Cloud in the Future of Robotics — Roger Barga, GM, AWS Robotics and Autonomous Services, Amazon Web Services
  • The Role of UX in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence — Dai Le, Robotics Product Designer, and Hamid Badiozamani, Software Engineer, Brain Corp.
  • Sole Agent Syndrome and Machine Learning for Human-Like Behavior — Russell Toris, Director of Robotics, Fetch Robotics
  • Developing a Home Robot: An Evolving Reality — Roland Angst, Head of ASUS Robotics and AI Center, ASUS
  • Developing Adaptive Robots That Keep Humans in the Loop — Massimiliano Versace, CEO, Neurala
  • Service Robots for Commercial Spaces: The Path From Autonomous to Intelligent Robots — Marcio Macedo, co-founder and VP of Product and Marketing, Ava Robotics
