Boise State University to hold smart manufacturing workshop on September 5

Boise State University is set to hold a workshop which will take an in-depth look at the subjects of robotics, automation, and artificial intelligence.

The Smart Manufacturing – Robotics / Automation / AI Workshop at Boise State University is set for September 5, and there limited seats available.

Readers interested in attending are invited to click on this link to book their place. 

Among the companies and organizations taking part will be TechHelp, Intel, and NexCOBOT.

The workshop at Boise State University that will focus on the current and future state of robotics, artificial intelligence, and automation in Idaho.

Attendees will be invited to learn from industry leaders and to discuss how we can build an environment that supports the growth of these important technologies in Idaho.

NexCOBOT recently helped create the new Robot Control Lab at the Boise State College of Engineering.

The lab houses four NexCOBOT robots used by Professor Aykut Satici in his robotics curriculum.

The new lab caught the attention of Intel, a company that has worked with NexCOBOT to integrate AI technology into robots in smart manufacturing environments.

The event will feature state-of-the-art robotics, AI solutions, and new programs at Boise State’s College of Engineering including a robotics curriculum for students and industry.

The event will include hands-on demonstrations of highly scalable robotics technology for industry and education.

Learn how COBOTS (open-source controlled or collaborative robots) can boost productivity, increase quality, and improve employee morale by taking on repetitive boring tasks.

Discover ways to engage with this technology by understanding the benefits, the business case, and the roadmap for incorporating cobots into industrial operations.

Industry experts will explain the latest trends in Artificial Intelligence / Internet of Things (AIoT) markets and technology.

During lunch, attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and offer ideas about creating a robust Robotics / AIoT ecosystem in Idaho.

“Artificial Intelligence promises to be the most disruptive class of technologies during the next 10 years due to advances in computational power, volume, velocity, and variety of data, as well as advances in deep neural networks,” says John-David Lovelock, research vice president at Gartner.

All events will take place in the Lookout Room on the 3rd Floor of the Boise State Student Union Building at 1700 University Drive.
