Conference Attendees Stalked by Helper Robots
Following bots are leading the pack at a robotics innovation showcase this week
At this moment, engineers from around the world are in Boston being trailed quietly by robots. Far from being sinister, these various automatons are spending a three-day conference showing off to developers — and eager investors — just how helpful their shadowing habits can be.
Now in its tenth year, RoboBusiness is an international executive-level robotics event that includes product showcases, lectures, and discussions; its stated goal is to connect engineers, developers, and investors in order to “accelerate the growth of the industry.” The conference kicked off its robo-centric events in Boston’s Hynes Convention Center on Wednesday, Oct. 15, and is displaying its innovative helper machines through Oct. 17.
