2013 Event: Briefing

Harnessing New Robotics Technologies for Job Creation

Briefing In conjunction with Congressional Robotics Caucus

From manufacturing to self-driving cars, robotics has made a huge impact as a transformative technology, fostering both innovation and the competitiveness of the United States in the global marketplace. Unfortunately, people have the misperception that robotics – and automation in general – would eliminate jobs instead of create them.  This briefing presents a first-hand account of views, opinions, and real-world experiences of experts and practitioners from the industry and academia, to demonstrate how robots are contributing to job growth and sustainability of U.S. industries.
