    • Machine learning systems that are providing surgical assistance
    • Will AI, drones and robotics transform the NHS and healthcare?
    • What are the innovation projections for the next 10 years
    • Innovative case studies – what has worked and what hasn’t?


  3. The Innovation Incubator is an area dedicated to grow, nourish and accelerate fresh ideas, solutions and future projects, presented by those at the heart of their creation. This exclusive area will give the best start-ups, students and up-and-coming engineers the chance to gain the recognition they deserve for developing the robotics solutions of the future.
  4. In this talk, I will present how academia can play a leading role in developing innovation in industry and highlight some of the benefits and pitfalls of working with academia. Examples of past and current projects in the marine environment will be used to support our arguments. We will also present the National Robotarium, a recently created centre for innovation at the interface of academic and industry in the UK. 

    • What does the next decade look like for robotic innovation?
    • Are these goals realistic?
    • How can we ensure the flow of funding remains continuous for future projects?

24th June

    • How have robots helped us gain further knowledge about space?
