About the event

The role of robots and robotics in society has advanced rapidly in recent years. More founders now recognise the role they can and will play in driving their business forward. And yet, even as we move away from the popular concept of robots conjured by works of science fiction from The Terminator to HG Wells’s War of the Worlds, doubts and fears persist. Are we about to hit the moment of singularity when robots and artificial intelligence will surpass humans and take control?

In the next Future View series, we will hear from Futurist Matthew Griffin on the latest trends in robotics, where current developments are taking us and what we need to know about the future of automation and robotics technology. Only by understanding the advantages and disadvantages more clearly can founders exploit the opportunities for their business.

We’ll explore:

  • Emerging robotic technology
  • Smart factories and smart manufacturing
  • Autonomous systems
  • Robots that can self-design and learn things on their own

Speaker:

Matthew Griffin is the founder and CEO of the World Futures Forum and the 311 Institute, a global Futures and Deep Futures consultancy working to assess how current developments and trends might shape the world over the next 50 years.

Recognised as one of the world’s foremost futurists, innovation and strategy experts, Matthew is an international speaker who helps governments, investors, multinationals and regulators around the world envision, build and lead an inclusive, sustainable future.

Format:

Expert-led discussion, with a presentation from Matthew followed by Q&A.
