 TechEthics Webinar

Advancing technology for the benefit of humanity is the IEEE tagline. In order for technology to benefit humanity, it is essential to address ethical concerns and societal implications. Join a panel of IEEE members as they discuss the various ways in which IEEE helps address the ethical and societal impacts of technology, why that's important, and how people (especially members) can get involved.

Panelists

Raja Chatila | Chair, IEEE Global Initiative for Ethical Considerations in Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Systems
Heather Love | Member at Large, IEEE Society on Social Implications of Technology Board of Governors
Stephen Welby | IEEE Executive Director and COO

The purpose of this award is to highlight and honor the achievements of the inventors with value creating ideas and entrepreneurs who propel those ideas into world-class products. This is a key element to the continuing success of robotics and automation today. Active infusion of innovation and entrepreneurship into technological advancement is regarded critical at this juncture to strengthen a healthy balance between research and practice as well as a healthy growth of industrial and commercial sectors in robotics and automation. In a joint event the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society and the International Federation of Robotics will therefore recognize and honor outstanding achievements of entrepreneurs in the commercialization of innovative robotic and automation technology.

These achievements will be recognized in a specially organized IEEE/IFR Joint Forum on Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Robotics and Automation, which is being held in conjunction with the International Symposium on Robotics. The selected finalists will have the opportunity to present their story of the genesis of a successful innovative product in robotics and automation from its very inception to the final state of commercialization in a series of plenary lectures. The ultimate winner will be chosen by an evaluation board consisting of distinguished individuals from industry and academia. A prestigious plaque will be awarded to each finalist and a US$ 2,000 prize will be awarded to the winner.

Applications should describe the original work that has been translated into a commercial success. The application must include statements regarding:

  • description of the innovation/product/application 
  • novelty/uniqueness of the product
  • sustained competitive advantage
  • stages of the product genesis
  • market analysis, economic viability and pathway for commercialization
  • current and future impact on and relevance to industry

Applications should not exceed a maximum length of 5 pages. Product descriptions and public relation material will not be accepted as an application. References and links to online material are permitted.

 

Submission of Applications
