My concerns for our future relationship with robotics align with John’s. When I met him and heard what he had to say, it was refreshing to hear from someone who not only shares those points of view, but also is actively working to do something about it. His approach for his business and his education system offers a vision for a path forward on how society can integrate automation with our lives instead of using automation to displace people. This also breathed some new life in me to continue to push for my own business and coworkers to think ahead as we constantly evaluate our automation capabilities. I truly enjoyed our session and hope others do, too!
