Symposium on Social Robotics Takeaways

Applications for social robotics are growing

We visited the United Arab Emirates to attend the Joint Social Robotics Symposium at the University of the United Arab Emirates and New York University Abu Dhabi. We also visited several research organizations and related groups to gain a better understanding of the research and investment trends in social robotics. During our visit we met with other researchers in robotics and artificial intelligence to learn about the latest research in the field. We also gave a presentation on our view on the state of social robotics and participated in several panels covering a variety of issues related to robotics.

The changing face of social robotics

The symposium was host to some of the world’s leading robotics researchers, executives and thought leaders, and included representatives from a range of organizations, including Fraunhofer, PAL Robotics, IEEE, the United States Military Academy, Oxford University, and Khalifa University, to name a few. The presentation topics covered ranged from robotics to artificial intelligence, digital twin, human-robot collaboration, commercial applications for social robotics, ethics for autonomous robots in war, to sociology, psychology and other disciplines related to the development of robotics technologies. While the views on the evolution and direction of social robotics was as diverse as the attendees and their topics, there were key takeaways and some overlapping views on the future direction of social robotics.

Key takeaways from our trip to the UAE and the JSSR 2019

Most of the research presented was about designing robots and other autonomous machines that are better able to discern what humans need or want and preemptively taking requisite actions to better serve
