Keynote speaker Ken Goldberg is an award-winning roboticist and filmmaker whose vision merges science and art. An utterly unique robotics speaker, Ken Goldberg has galvanized audiences at the World Economic Forum, the Aspen Ideas Festival, TEDx, SXSW, and hundreds of corporate events.
Ken Goldberg’s research into robotics and AI have earned him eight US patents and inspired more than 250 scholarly papers. His fusion of technology and art have earned him a place in the Whitney Biennial and in 70 other exhibitions. His unique ability to place robotics in an entirely human context has made Goldberg a popular and enlightening keynote speaker.
As a roboticist, Goldberg oversees a lab at UC Berkeley that continually reimagines machines’ interaction with the wider world. His robots appear in surgery theaters and precision-planted cropland, assembly lines and social media platforms. Goldberg often focuses on seemingly intractable problems. For instance, he developed the first demonstrably complete algorithm for assembly-line part feeding.
While serving as Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering, Goldberg shaped the professional conversation around robotics. He is also a successful entrepreneur. Goldberg has co-founded the Berkeley Center for New Media, the African Robotics Network, Hybrid Wisdom Labs, and Moxie Film Studio.
Nonprofit organizations and industry-leading corporations seek Goldberg’s insights on the future of automation and its relationship with human culture.
Should we believe headlines about AI and robots stealing jobs, replacing drivers, doctors, and lawyers? Is the Singularity coming? Are AI and Robots an existential threat to humans?
"Automation Anxiety" has a long history, with widespread pronouncements about the imminent loss of jobs to Automation. In contrast to the science-fiction fearmongering around the "Singularity", the award-winning Roboticist from UC Berkeley, Prof. Ken Goldberg, will propose an inclusive alternative: "Multiplicity," where diverse groups of humans work together with diverse groups of machines to innovate and solve problems.
In this fascinating talk, Prof. Goldberg will share results from his research in robotics and their global study suggesting how AI could lead to a more productive and inclusive future for humans.
