Robo Cluster Leaders Present at NEU EntreTech Forum

Last night I moderated a panel at Northeastern's EntreTech Forum. The session, organized by Val Livada of Weybridge Partners, was billed as follows: "Robotics: Entrepreneurs and academics discuss the future breakpoints between artificial intelligence and human intelligence."

The panel included Bob Quinn, VP, QinetiQ/Foster Miller, Charles Remsberg, CEO, Hocoma, Barry Trimmer, Professor, Tufts University & Director, Tufts Biomimetic Devices Laboratory, and Dan Weinreb, Investor, Common Angels.

I gave an overview of the MassTLC Robotics Cluster's recent research report on the local robotics ecosystem and the panel discussed issues relating to academic research, technology commercialization, barriers, and other good stuff.

For those who asked, here is a copy of my slides - coming soon. I used a similar deck at the NEVCA and NIST meetings.
