You're invited to the IEEE Vision, Innovation, and Challenges Summit and Honors Ceremony
11 May 2018 at The Palace Hotel in San Francisco, CA, USA.
The IEEE Vision, Innovation, and Challenges Summit brings together leading innovators, visionaries, and disruptors in technology to discuss, explore, and uncover what is imminent, what is possible – and what these emerging technologies mean for our future.
The Summit culminates with the IEEE Honors Ceremony, where IEEE's highest awards are presented. These awards are an expression of recognition for outstanding contributions to the advancement of the theory and practice of electrical, electronics, communications, environmental and safety technologies, computer science and engineering, engineering education, as well as the allied branches of engineering and the related arts and sciences and technologies and their application.
Robots on the Rise: The Future of Robotics and AI
Robots have long captured our imagination, but for decades they’ve been confined to factories and research labs. Now robots are finally making their way into our homes, offices, warehouses, hospitals, and streets. Agile humanoids, social robots, and autonomous vehicles are becoming a reality thanks to recent advances in robotics and AI.
These machines promise to improve our daily lives, but they also raise questions. What jobs should we automate? Can self-driving cars help save lives? Should we be build AI-powered weapons? Where's Rosie the Robot? This panel of robot luminaries will tackle these and other pressing questions on the future of robotics and artificial intelligence.
Moderator: Oussama Khatib, Stanford University
Speakers (L-R): Marc Raibert, co-founder and President of Boston Dynamics Inc.; Cynthia Breazeal, MIT; Dr. Eric Krotkov, Toyota Research Institute
