Aligning Forces in Canadian Robotics

Today, I have the honor to open the Stakeholder meeting and workshop of the Canadian Robotics Strategy event in Vancouver BC. It's an important time to reflect of what has been done so far and what are the next opportunities to seize. We'll mainly discuss the future or robotics research in Canada, its commercial potential and the collaboration between academics and industries.
