Event Overview

 

Humanoid robots work at Singapore Pizza Huts. Cyborgs walk the streets. There’s an AI assistant in every pocket. Cars drive themselves.

These are not visions of the future. This is now.

 

Machine learning, robotics, and AI are transforming the world. FutureWorld 2018 will feature presentations and demos on the future of robotics and AI from creators, researchers, industrialists, and visionaries, offering an inside view of what’s possible, what’s on the horizon, and how you can help design our future.

 

“Ready or not, the robots are coming. There will be cars driving themselves, with no steering wheel for us to grab. Delivery drones will maneuver around patio furniture and vegetable gardens to drop packages in backyards. Delivery carts on sidewalks will hum along, bringing pizza boxes to our front doors.”

– Matt McFarland, The Washington Post, Dec 18, 2015

 

Design thinking for robots and AI.

 

Collaboration between designers and engineers will shape the robot revolution. FutureWorld will help forge those connections, bringing roboticists out of their workshops to give attendees a glimpse of our future. Designers, engineers, inventors, technologists, researchers, entrepreneurs, and fans of the future should attend to get an inside view on what’s currently possible, what’s on the horizon, and how to help shape our future.

 

Join us for this inspiring day that will include 7 presentations, a panel conversation, and hands on demos.
