Meet the Robots November 14, 2018

The robots Pepper, Nao and Miro joining in with our session on AI, Automation and the Future of Work

Sheffield Robotics and Consequential Robotics will be showcasing their new Teleport application. 

''You can immerse yourself in the robots like a robotic avatar of yourself! Your senses will be fully linked to the robot's senses; you will see and hear what the robot sees and hears and speak to other people through the robot as they move around the room.''

As well as teleporting into the robots, you can interact with them, see how easy and productive it can be to live and alongside robots and AI and how useful they can be in the workplace. You can also meet Miro the social robot and understand more about the potential of social robotics for your industry and organisation.

Here's an example of the telespresence demo in action

  • The impact of robotics on the future of work
  • The potential of telepresence technology - could a robot take your place in a meeting?
  • The use cases of social robots 
  • How to tackle the digital skills gap
  • The challenges of human-robot interaction
