Keynote: Robotics, Intelligent Systems and Transformational Innovation

Thursday, May 24, 2018

9:00 am – 9:45 am

Presenter: John Lizzi, R&D Manager, GE Global Research

Transformational innovations make for transformational times. Advancements in automation, robotics and intelligent systems technologies, coupled with pervasive communication and deep analytics, make it possible for businesses to operate in wholly new ways to drive down costs, optimize performance and generate revenue. For solution providers involved in the automation, robotics and intelligent systems value chain, the opportunity landscape is equally vast and compelling. However, as with any class of nascent technology, both the end-user and supplier communities are faced with rapid business change, continuous technological churn, and much uncertainty.

In this farsighted session, John Lizzi, R&D Manager, GE Global Research, will describe the current state-of-the-art in robotics and supporting technologies, revealing the larger, repeating patterns of technological and business significance, while emphasizing the opportunities enabled by transformational innovation along the way.
