2012 Robotics Alley Conference and Expo

Dates: November 15, 2012
Location: Edina, Minnesota

The leading companies, organizations, universities, and individuals working together through Robotics Alley are involved in some of the world’s most innovative and promising robotics projects. Together, we are transforming industries from medicine and agriculture, to security and industrial manufacturing.

Robotics Alley™ is an initiative founded by ReconRobotics and the Minnesota High Tech Association meant to spur public-private partnerships in the business, research and development of world-leading robotics and automation systems. Robotics Alley hosts an annual conference & exposition in Minnesota’s Twin Cities, which is on pace to become one of the world’s leading conferences on robotics and automation.

Robotics Alley 2012, which will be held November 15, is being planned for hundreds of presenters, attendees and exhibitors. It will feature a keynote presentation by Daniel H. Wilson, the New York Times bestselling author of Robopocalypse (which was purchased by DreamWorks and is being adapted into a film directed by Steven Spielberg) and seven other books, including How to Survive a Robot Uprising and A Boy and His Bot. He earned a Ph.D. in Robotics from Carnegie Mellon University, as well as a Master’s degree in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence.
