Celebrating robotics in Britain!

Britain's role at the heart of robotics innovation will be celebrated again with the public this summer with the return of UK Robotics Week, encompassing an expanded nationwide programme of events for this week-long celebration (24th – 30th June 2017).

Building on the huge success of last year’s inaugural event, this year's event offers activities for people of all ages up and down the country, from exclusive open days and public lectures,  such as “A Fatal Attraction?” with Professor Kerstin Dautenhahn, Monday 19th June 2017, 18:00, University of Liverpool; film premieres, competitions, cutting-edge robotics demonstrations and exhibitions.

A key highlight will be the Science Museum Lates Exhibition: Robots (Wednesday 28th June 2017, 18:45), which will feature a unique collection of over 100 robots, from a 16th-century mechanical monk to robots from science fiction and modern-day research labs.

The UK Robotics Week will conclude with a Grand Finale International Robotics Showcase event at the IET, Savoy Place, London, on Friday 30th June 2017. This celebration finale will host global leaders in robotics research, and include presentations from key international robotics and autonomous systems developers (academic and industry) as well as robotics demonstrations, keynote lectures, panel discussions and film premieres.

The event will also include an awards ceremony for the challenge winners and the launch of four new white papers on Extreme Environments; Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning; Resilient Infrastructure and Social Care Robotics. Registration for this event will be announced next month.
