What's Next In Robotics

Mar 14, 2024

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

Full self-driving cars and the idea of robots operating at scale within homes still feels very far away. But as variations on these technologies are maturing, many things in everyday life are becoming more automated even if we don’t notice them. They're used on farms and in factories. And while your car might not drive itself, it's constantly collecting data and even testing AI-driven autopilot tools. This session will explore what these technologies can do now, what problems they might help solve in the near future, and what ethical questions we should be asking along the way.
