Engaging with robotics in visions for the future: intelligent robotics in the home, workplace and industry.

As robots are become more intelligent, their integration into society is going to have an impact on everyone’s lives. Robots that can function independently of human command, adapt to their surroundings & make decisions will be hugely disruptive. It’s important to bring together key influencers to share cutting-edge technological developments & explore how we can successfully integrate robotics into the home & workplace through public engagement.
