About this talk

Robots and drones have captivated us for more than half a century. When you think about a robot, you might automatically think about Rosie from the Jetsons. However, the next revolution of robotics will be very different than what you think. Robotics will enhance everyday life by enabling a broad range of applications from smart home to healthcare and transportation. Why now? Historically, robots have been pre-programmed to complete tasks in industrial settings, but thanks to the same technology powering our smart phones, robots are poised to evolve into intelligent, intuitive machines capable of processing their environments quickly and efficiently - both on the ground and in the air. Robots will be seamlessly integrated with everyday life, handling tasks once too time-consuming or tedious for us. In this webinar, we'll discuss: *The key consumer and commercial applications of robots and drones *The role robots will play in societies and economies *How smartphone technologies will pave the way to robotics' future * How cognitive technologies will transform our lives and business * How Qualcomm is fostering innovation and helping the ecosystem * The foundation of many IoT applications in shaping the way to robotics Speakers: Jim McGregor, Principal Analyst, Tirias Research Andra Keay, Managing Director of Silicon Valley Robotics Anthony Lewis, Senior Director of Technology, Qualcomm Maged Zaki, Director of Technical Marketing, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.
