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.

ST Robotics - R17HS-6, the 6-axis version of the high speed R17 variant

The 6-axis version of the R17HS high speed variant of the R17 robot is now available. As is our policy the 6th axis is an optional bolt-on module. At the same time we have made it even faster and new software eliminates shake and greatly improves repeatability as this video shows. Please see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wG0MeiJ-yE. The video would seem to imply a repeatability of 0.01mm but we are sticking with 0.2mm in the spec. The motor specialist was able to tune the motors from the other side of the pond. My first reaction when we put power on and entered the first commands was to jump back in amazement (and maybe an expletive). Tip speed is now 3m/s; that's 3 times as fast as its nearest competitor yet costs half the price. I love it when a plan comes together.
