Neither cute electronic teddybears nor uncanny military robots: how will a working relationship with collaborative robots (cobots) be safe, productive and rewarding?
A new player has emerged at the intersection of artificial intelligence, mechatronics and funny dog videos: collaborative robots, or “cobots” in short.
Cobots in the workplace will be alien in appearance, physically superior and as close to us as it gets. So, how might we disperse fears, shape workflows and foster communication with them?
In this session, we will draw inspiration from existing robots, digitally enabled toys and trained animal companions.
Whether you’re a professional or an enthusiast: join us to learn about best practices and actionable guidance for designing cobots!
