About the Session

A new player has emerged at the intersection of artificial intelligence, mechatronics and funny dog videos: Collaborative robots, or “cobots” for short. Cobots will be alien, bodily superior and right next to us. So, how might we disperse fears, shape workflows and foster communication with them?

In this session, we will take inspiration from existing human-facing robots, digitally enabled toys and trained animal companions. Whether you’re a professional or enthusiast: This talk shows you best practices and actionable guidance around cobots.
