About the Event

Softbotics is about bringing robotics into everyday life – and evolving our own thinking from robots as large, industrial scale machines to smaller, human-scale components that integrate into our lives and our world.

In order to pioneer this new generation of machines that are safe and comfortable for direct physical interaction with humans, researchers must create imperceptible robots and develop highly symbiotic, complex systems that seamlessly integrate with human life.

Join a panel of CMU experts for a discussion of how their groundbreaking research is creating small, soft and biointerfacing machines and bringing robots into households, workplaces, hospitals and even the natural world.
