Adopting robotic automation is traditionally an extremely expensive, highly complex, and time-consuming process that must be approached as a significant capital project. However, recent advances in artificial intelligence, 3d printing and digital twins unlock new opportunities for manufacturers and systems integrators alike.
Juan Aparicio, the President of Robota Labs, has spent his career discovering new applications for AI in automation. At RoboBusiness, which takes place October 18-19 in Santa Clara, CA, Aparicio will lead a session, titled “New Opportunities for AI, 3D Printing and Digital Twins in Manufacturing and Intralogistics”.
In the session, Aparicio will share the recent innovations that are reducing the cost of deployments and accelerating timelines. Most importantly, Aparicio will separate the hype from the real-world applications, and provide actual examples on how these technologies are changing robotic automation at factories all over the US.
Juan Aparicio is a robotics and automation enthusiast on a mission to scale and democratize access to robotics technology in manufacturing and beyond. During his career, he has brought together the worlds of industrial automation, robotics, and AI with his work featured in the New York Times, MIT Tech Review, Wired, Forbes, The Robot Report and other media outlets.
With Robota Labs, Aparicio is partnering with manufacturers that want to enter the world of AI and robotics in a risk-free way. Prior to founding Robota Labs, he was the VP of Product at Rapid Robotics and Ready Robotics. Before that, Aparicio was the Head of Advanced Manufacturing Automation for Siemens, where he led a top team of researchers and engineers in Berkeley, California, working elbow-to-elbow with renowned academic partners.
Aparicio is a Technical Advisor for the Advanced Robotic in Manufacturing (ARM) Institute, a member of A3’s AI Tech Strategy Board, and a Skydeck advisor. In 2019, he was awarded the MIT Tech Review Innovator under 35 Europe in the Pioneer category. In 2020, he was awarded Siemens Inventor of the Year and the prestigious Thomas Alva Edison Patent Award.
RoboBusiness is the leading event focused on developing commercial robots. There will be 60-plus speakers, 100-plus exhibitors and demos on the expo floor, networking receptions, the Pitchfire Robotics Startup Competition and more. You can check out the current list of speakers, to which more will be added.
RoboBusiness will be co-located with the Field Robotics Engineering Forum, an event focused on how to successfully develop robots that operate in wide-ranging, outdoor, dynamic environments.
Also co-located with RoboBusiness is DeviceTalks West, the premier industry event for medical technology professionals, currently in its ninth year. Both events attract engineering and business professionals from a broad range of healthcare and medical technology backgrounds.
