San Diego: MecklerMedia’s RoboUniverse Conference & Expo Features Over 80 Speakers, Including Mayor Kevin Faulconer
If you are interested in learning more about robotics, MecklerMedia’s RoboUniverse Conference & Expo is the place to be. Robotics, a complementary and increasingly convergent cousin to 3D printing, is another disruptive technology with the potential to change many processes as we know them. With the endless benefits robotics have to offer the world, there are many facets to consider–and that’s exactly what the more than 80 speakers just announced for RoboUniverse San Diego will be helping us to do.
Being held at the San Diego Convention Center from December 14-16, attendees will gain insight into robotics, drone technology, as well as the internet of everything. Regarding all of these technologies, those attending will learn about how each has its own movement and revolution to offer, as well as significant business and investment opportunities.
“As the industry’s premier service robotics trade show, RoboUniverse showcases practical robot solutions and innovation trends across industries that improve the way people work, learn, and live,” said Richard Erb, Executive Director, RoboUniverse.
Along with the long list of speakers being released, MecklerMedia has also made a special announcement that the mayor of San Diego, Kevin Faulconer, will make an appearance at RoboUniverse San Diego, addressing the crowd on December 15 at 1:30pm.
Sessions at RoboUniverse San Diego will also explore innovation in agriculture, cognitive science, manufacturing & logistics, STEM education, healthcare, and more.
Keynote speakers for RoboUniverse San Diego include:
- Chris Anderson, CEO, 3D Robotics
- Charles Bergan, Vice President of Engineering, Qualcomm, Inc.
- Cynthia Breazeal, Founder and Chief Scientist, Jibo
- Albert P. Pisano, PhD, Dean of the Jacobs School of Engineering, University of California, San Diego
- Mel Torrie, M.S., CEO and Founder, Autonomous Solutions, Inc.
MecklerMedia has also announced the EZDrone Crash Course, a series of drone training sessions led by Sean Daniels, CEO and founder of EZDrone. The sessions will feature active audience involvement and flying instruction using multiple drone types. The EZDrone Crash Course trainings are complimentary for all RoboUniverse San Diego registrants and will take place in the Drone Zone located in the RoboUniverse expo hall.
Launched in New York City in May as a new expo within MecklerMedia’s expansive international tradeshow offerings, RoboUniverse is dedicated to advancing the service robotics industry, and allows attendees to learn more about mega trends and advancements in mobility, manipulation, vision, perception, cognitive computing combined with cloud technologies, and an ever-increasing connected world (IoT). These technologies are heavily tied in to advancing business, manufacturing, education, healthcare, and consumer applications.
