@swissnex China

Dear Members and Friends of SwissCham,

What are the latest state-of-the-art advancements in the field of robotics / AI, and how have things changed since the robots started moving into our own living space a quarter century ago, as the pace of digitalization has picked up rapidly?

Join renowned Dr. Rolf Pfeifer’s insightful talk exploring the hype surrounding the topic of robot and AI in popular media. He proposes that realistic communications and employing the concepts of embodiment are key in coping with the “robotic hype”. Dr. Pfeifer will also introduce his ROBOLOUNGE project, a café / lounge where robots instead of humans take care of the well-being of the customers.

Best regards,

Your SwissCham Team
