SummaryAs computing power increases, A.I. becomes smarter, and the Internet becomes available anywhere and everywhere, how is the field of robots taking advantage to this new environment?
DescriptionJoin us for a discussion about what’s emerging in the realm of robotics with Alan Meekins. Alan has been building internet connected robots since 2002. Over that time he's become an active advocate of the open source Robotics Operating System (ROS). Currently he leads a startup, ROSHub Inc, focused on bringing cloud based devops tools to the ROS eco-system. When he's not building startups he enjoys making interactive art installations.
