RoboBusiness 2016: Our Takeaways

We’re back from our yearly sync with the robotics industry happening at RoboBusiness. As usual, there were great talks and great people to meet. To be honest, it felt less frenzied this year than in the previous two to three events. Are people becoming more realistic about the promise of robots or am I just becoming immune to the ambient buzz? There were a lot of local players who were not at the event. Maybe they’re just busy working at making their stuff work after a surge of investment, as shown in the Boston Consulting Group presentation.
