Employed in defense, space exploration, manufacturing, and healthcare,
machine systems — whether defined by artificial intelligence or pure
robotics — play an increasingly large role in contemporary life. Applied
robotics is becoming mainstream, and big data is radically shifting the
way we function. Will human labor be replaced by machine labor? Will
computers outperform us? Who will bear the costs of mistakes? Might
robots get the upper hand? Who guides their moral compass?

    In Depth: Drones, Phones, and Robotic Friends-Where Is Emergent Technology Taking Us?

    In Depth: Drones, Phones, and Robotic Friends-Where Is Emergent Technology Taking Us?

    As the landscape of high tech is increasingly modernized through applications of robotics from operating theaters to rescue missions, smarter phones that manage our lives, and flying technologies that put cameras (and weapons) in the air (if not everywhere) how will the balance of law, ethics, and relationships between humans and machines change us?

    Why You Want R2D2 to Operate on You

    Why You Want R2D2 to Operate on You

    Really a look at where robotics will take us in surgery, both from a standpoint of precision, and opportunity, but also jobs, career paths for doctors, and liability issues (what happens if a robot fails?)

    Analytics: How Big Data Can Solve our Most Complex Problems

    Analytics: How Big Data Can Solve our Most Complex Problems

    Data rates are growing some 40% each year, and the sheer amount of data has outstripped common analytics and staffing levels — creating a serious data analysis gap. To move forward, organizations must transform big data into smart data, which means being able to analyze data on a massive scale and quickly use it to provide deeper insights, create new products, and differentiate services. New data science is built on velocity (fast moving data), variety (different kinds of data), and volume (large amounts of data). This panel will explore what kinds of approaches and analytic tools are now being used and to what end. It will also examine the opportunities, risks, and likely developments the near future holds as analysis helps us transform the commodities of big data into valuable smart data.

    The Copenhagen Wheel:How Design and Robotics Come Together to Transform Urban Mobility

    The Copenhagen Wheel:How Design and Robotics Come Together to Transform Urban Mobility

    Cities today are growing at unprecedented rates, and so is demand for transportation. At the same time attitudes toward cars are changing, leaving people worldwide in search of new modes of transport that better serve their mobility needs. Assaf Biderman, co-inventor of the award winning Copenhagen Wheel and founder of Superpedestrian will explore with us how a simple idea can change the way we move around. The wheel, which can be installed on almost any bicycles, multiplies the rider’s power by up to 5 times. It makes cycling over large distances and uphill a breeze, offering a competitive alternative to cars for commuters. Through a smart phone, users can customize the wheel, receive information about their physical activity, and connect with other riders to share information about road conditions, safer cycling routes, and much more.. The Copenhagen Wheel exemplifies a broader technological transformation has been taking place. We're seeing digital devices becoming an integral part of everyday objects and recombining with the built environment. This so-called embedded intelligence in the things that surround us opens the door to completely rethink how we address the problems faced by today's cities.

    Assaf Biderman is the speaker here.
