According to IEEE, the world's largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity, “In the not-so-distant future, we will begin entrusting to robotic systems such vital tasks as driving a car, performing surgery and choosing when to apply lethal force in a war zone. Ever more autonomous machines will present challenges spanning technical, regulatory and even philosophical realms. They will force us to confront deep moral quandaries and might even tweak our sense of who we are.”
This year’s Oklahoma Technology Showcase will focus on some of these systems and the companies that research, design, build and sell components for some of the most sophisticated robots in the world.
