Featured Session: Robots: Today, Tomorrow, Future

Robots are coming of age, making their way out of the lab and into our lives. Get an update on what that means today and what is coming down the pike, including live stage performances of Boston Dynamics robots - Spot and Atlas.

Boston Dynamics makes some of the world's most advanced robots, including Spot, Atlas and Handle. These robots use their "Athletic Intelligence" to move dynamically, travel where other robots can't go, handle large payloads, and move faster to get work done more quickly. Raibert will give a status report on the robots being developed at Boston Dynamics, including general-purpose robots that support innovation and ecosystem, special purpose-built robots that address existing commercial opportunities, and R&D robots that will lead to the robots of our dreams. The presentation will include a live demonstration of the Spot robot and the World debut of Atlas performing its latest maneuvers.
