SCV IEEE Robotics and Automation Society Chaptrer


Specific AI and single task Robotics are common in manufacturing, and are slowly penetrating into home life, retail, and the hospitality market places.  However, as labor problems continue to grow, the need for general purpose robots with AI capable of completing complex tasks has emerged.  Humanoid Robots will be coming to market soon.  We will discuss development of our Beomni AI and Robotics platform and how it will address the eldercare crisis, the shortage of doctors and nurses, and many other applications.   Join us for a lively discussion on the future of humanoid robots.
