Meet the Robots Ideathon
- 13:00 - 17:30
Are you fascinated, excited or simply curious about Robotics, then you should join this event! Meet the Robots is a series of events created to discover the world of robotics and explore how they could empower our society. We shall kickstart the series with an "Ideathon" to generate ideas around the use of robots and to bring these ideas to life at the "Hackathon for Humanoids", later this year. As the world of robotics is very broad, we have decided to focus this event on the social and human side of robotics.
Ideathon for Robots
In this first part of the series we will provide an introduction on robotics, artificial intelligence and touch upon the ethical side of these technologies. We shall continue with a breakout session to brainstorm around the use of robots aimed at improving people’s lives and for the purpose to create a positive impact to our society and organisations. The best ideas that will come out of this ideathon will be presented during the Seats2meet.com Robotics event on the 8th June and will enter the Hackathon for Humanoids (at a date TBC).
First of all, you don't need to be a coder, programmer, hacker or techie to join this ideathon. We are looking for people who have the creativity, affinity, imagination and general vision to come up with scenarios that make people’s lives easier, more meaningful and supportive through the use of robotics.
