Robots and the Smart Home

Abstract
Home robots, such as the iRobot Roomba vacuuming robot, have been welcomed into millions of homes around the world and are hard at work every day helping people to get more done. iRobot is the market leader in home robotics and is at the forefront in developing technologies for practical robots, including visual SLAM, navigation, and human-robot interaction. We are working towards a vision for how robots will enable a truly smart, smart home. This talk will highlight how robots, and robotics technologies, are uniquely positioned to drive innovative new smart home solutions.

VP of Technology Dr. Chris Jones has over 20 years of experience in robotics research and development across academia, government, and industry.
