Robotics Speakers

Aurum Speakers Bureau presents a diverse portfolio of world-leading robotics speakers. Our speakers are pushing the boundaries of engineering, automation, artificial intelligence, and computer science. Collectively, they are challenging the limits of what machines can achieve.

The world stands on the brink of revolution. Smart, sentient robots with the capability to see, hear, think, and perhaps even to feel may be only a decade or two away. Advances in biomechatronics could see humans and machines fused, in the form of cyborgs. We could soon find ourselves rubbing shoulders with hyper-realistic androids on the streets of our cities. But are these advances a sign of progress, or a step toward unknown dangers? Will robots be content to serve us as their human masters, or will they rise against us? Can a sentient machine be owned, patented, bought, and sold – or does it have rights of its own?

So far, these questions have formed the basis of sci-fi novels and Hollywood blockbusters, but soon, they’ll become political talking points with relevance in the real world. You can count on our robotics speakers to inform, intrigue, and inspire your audience with their expert insights into one of the most exciting fields of research.
