Military Robotics 2012 will bring together a line-up of key military and academic industry professionals to discuss the latest developments taking place within the military robotic arena.

London, UK October 25, 2012


Robots are increasingly being used within the military to detect and locate bombs and used to carry out jobs proven too risky for humans. With developments increasing and more money being invested into new advanced technology, for example iRobot Corp has just received a $10 million contract from the U.S. Army's Robotic Systems Joint Program Office, there comes no better time to discuss the future of robotics used within the military and the impact the machines will have on our lives.

Attendees will have the chance to gain insight into the latest technologies being used by companies to create robots which serve military purposes and have the opportunity to be a part of the debate which surrounds the ethical and legal issues around the subject. How ethical is it to use artificial intelligence on the battlefield verses humans? Join in the the discussion by registering at http://www.smi-online.co.uk/militaryrobotics30.asp
