Silicon Valley Explores the Influence of Robotics and Artificial Intelligence on the Future of Technology at Global Mobile Internet Conference (GMIC)

World-renowned roboticists will convene at GMIC Silicon Valley on September 28-30 to present their most innovative robots and deliver brilliant insights on the ways that artificial intelligence will impact the future.

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., July 29, 2015 -- On the heels of warnings from artificial intelligence experts and technologists, including Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking, on the potential dangers of robotics, GMIC's Robotics Summit will examine the role that robots play in the future of technology. Robots and artificial intelligence are poised to provide the next great leaps in technology and drive the future development of national defense, workforce, and economic activity.


GMIC's Robotics Summit will showcase the most recent advancements in robotics with presentations from technology experts on how artificial intelligence will be integrated into our daily lives to improve everything from healthcare and prosthetics to global issues of national safety and economic opportunity.

Featured events include a robot dancing session and demonstrations of the advancements in robot movement and communications methods. Summit attendees will hear from university researchers, patent-holders, and entrepreneurs who have worked with leading governments, defense, and security companies.

Robotics Summit speakers include:

* Keith Gunura - CEO & Co-founder, AG Noonee
* Homayoon Kazerooni - CEO, US. Bionics & Director of the Berkeley Robotics Human Engineering Lab
* Cory D. Kidd - CEO & Co-founder, Catalia Health
* Tim Tuttle - CEO & Founder, Expect Labs
* Anis Uzzaman - CEO & General Partner, Fenox VC
* Hu Yu - SVP & Dean of Research Institute, iFLYTEK
* Zhichen Yu - CEO, Tuling Robotics

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
