Robotics, a first cousin to 3D printing, is one of the hottest technologies attracting innovators–and investors–today. While of course it’s been on the radar as something projected to become mainstream ‘in the future’ a la science fiction TV and movies for decades, its day in the sun has definitely come.
The use of robotics is now being highly relied upon for many contemporary innovations, and because of that, it’s important to bring all of today’s brightest minds together not only to celebrate this rapidly evolving technology, but also to give experts, hobbyists, and everyone interested a chance to learn more, share, and check out all the amazing inventions abounding today.
As this amazing technology continues to advance, MecklerMedia has created RoboUniverse, the first global trade show series for the service robotics industry. As the leading producer of global trade shows, conferences, and digital publications covering 3D printing, robotics, and bitcoin/blockchain, MecklerMedia produces more than 25 conferences annually. There will be several international trade shows for RoboUniverse, all happening in the last quarter of this year.
Now, MecklerMedia has announced that Qualcomm Incorporated and Autonomous Solutions, Inc. (ASI) will be Platinum Sponsors at RoboUniverse San Diego, taking place at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California on December 14-16, 2015.
Headquartered in San Diego, Qualcomm Incorporated is a world leader in 3G, 4G, and next-generation wireless technologies. ASI is a worldwide leader in vehicle automation and unmanned ground vehicle solutions, and it’s expected that they will display a fully autonomous vehicle for agricultural use as part of its Platinum Sponsorship.
Both companies will be very involved as sponsors and with speaking engagements. The opening keynote for the event will be delivered by Qualcomm’s Vice President of Engineering, Charles Bergan, on December 15th from 9:15 a.m. to 10 a.m. Also representing Qualcomm will be:
- Houman Haghighi, Staff Manager of Business Operations, Qualcomm Ventures
- Ryan Kuder, Managing Director of the Qualcomm Robotics Accelerator, powered by Techstars, who will serve as judges for the RoboGameChanger Startup Competition.
The RoboGameChanger Startup Competition, being held on December 15th, will begin at 5 p.m. Sponsored by Mooreland Partners and Asimov Ventures, winners will compete for a $10,000 uncapped convertible note, courtesy of Asimov Ventures. It’s been confirmed that additional judges will indeed be Tyler Benster, Technology Evangelist, Asimov Ventures, and Rick Dalton, Managing Director, Mooreland Partners.
Mel Torrie, the CEO and co-founder of Autonomus Solutions, Inc., will also be the final confirmed keynote speaker on December 16th 1:30pm – 2:15pm.
Other speakers at RoboUniverse San Diego will be:
- Chris Anderson, CEO, 3D Robotics
- Dr. Cynthia Breazeal, Founder and Chief Scientist, Jibo
- Albert P. Pisano, PhD, Dean of the Jacobs School of Engineering, University of California, San Diego
