The future of AI Robotics and Business Automation

David Hanson

Humanizing the machine: David Hanson believes the future of AI Robotics and Business Automation is biological

The world is rapidly changing. Technology and businesses are advancing at an unprecedented rate, with fields such as artificial intelligence and robotics leading the forefront.

Dr. David Hanson, robotics genius and creator of ‘Sophia’ the robot, is one of the inspirational people leading the charge, which is why ProMotivate was proud to represent him at a recent conference in Dubai: Supercharging Maximo with AI and Analytics. The conference brought together almost 250 delegates from 72 companies in 12 different industries, all to discuss the ways the AI and Robotics Industry can further future technology.

Dubai is a country with a personal stake in robotics, with a $21 billion foreign investment in AI and robotics projects. AI adoption will account for 45% of the world’s economy gains by 2030, and Dubai is ranked first globally in attracting FDI for AI (mostly from Europe and the United States). It’s also why they need to hear from experts in AI and Robotics. With that sort of investment, only the biggest and brightest people in the industry can be called upon to offer their insight and expertise. (See our range of AI and Robotics Conference Speakers).

One of the key messages David Hanson talked about was how to gain insight from biology when architecting the next generation of technology solutions. He believes the future of AI robotics and business automation is biological. It’s about humanizing the machines and making them more human-centric and useful to our daily lives. He believes that value can be gained from this type of interface, which will start a revolution of bio-inspired ‘living’ machines.

It’s an opinion that should come as no surprise from the man who invented the world’s most human-like, empathetic and intelligent character robot. But David’s career actually started as a Walt Disney Imagineer, where he worked as both a sculptor and technical consultant in robotics. He is also a well-published scientist and has won several awards for his dedication to the robotics field. And with such impressive credentials, it’s little wonder his appearance at the Maximo conference was widely acclaimed, with social media platforms such as Twitter widely reporting his appearance and inspirational messages.
