Ted Hollifield moderated this program sponsored by the Jewish High Tech Community. Once considered a topic for science fiction, robotics has emerged as a key factor in many industries. The use of robots to automate repetitive tasks and to perform activities that are difficult or dangerous has become a practical reality. The number and complexity of robotic applications and their impact is increasing rapidly.
Recent acquisitions by Google and Amazon highlight the growing importance of this field and its future potential. Have we arrived at a commercial robotics era where the use of robots will be pervasive across functions and industries, and what are the implications of that? What are the hot developments taking place today and where is the industry headed? What are the opportunities for startups?
