How advanced will specialized robots that can interact safely with their environment be in the near future? What is the entrepreneurial system around these today, and how will the emerging investment trends shape their development? Which sectors would be most impacted by the integration of these robots and how prepared are our regulatory frameworks for them?

In this week’s episode of “A Glimpse into the Future”, we talk to Alex Wyatt, Founder and CEO of August Robotics, a company aiming to bring people-friendly robotics solutions into day-to-day life. Alex is also a member of the World Economic Forum’s Council on the Future of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics.
