Automate 2017: Collaborative Robotic Safety
One of the key challenges to the use of machine/deep learning systems has been in testing and validating them to ensure safety. Our co-founders have written a paper on this topic as it relates to autonomous vehicles in the past, but the fundamental challenge is relevant to any autonomous system, including collaborative robotics. That's why our CEO, Mike Wagner, will be presenting at the "Collaborative Robots: Safety Implications" panel at Automate 2017. The panel will also include Carole Franklin of the Robotics Industry Association and Thomas Knauer of Omron STI. The panel will be held from 3pm to 5pm on Tuesday, April 4.
Mike will discuss some of the challenges in validating safety in collaborative robotics, particularly when it involves systems that incorporate deep learning. Mike will talk about how we approach safety when traditional safety practices are frustrated, and the techniques and tools we use to help organizations overcome those challenges.
