Investing in Service Robotics, a quickly growing industry

one comment

Service Robotics is a quickly growing industry. Many new robotics companies are born every day. It will be the next revolution. If you want to know who the main players are and understand this arena a bit more, I recommend you read this incredibly well done piece of research about the robotics stock market by Frank Tobe, editor and publisher of The Robot Report, who is also an investor in the robotics area, therefore with personal experience and interest on it.

The future of robotics goes totally towards the incorporation of more intelligence.
Intelligence includes, among other things, perception (interpreting the environment and extracting the most relevant information from it), reasoning (inferring new knowledge from the one we perceive, i.e. if we know that A implies B, and B implies C, then we can infer that A implies C); learning (as many people have pointed out in this thread already); and decision making to implement solutions to particular applications (such as security, companion, tele-presence robots, autonomous scrubber machines, vacuum cleaners, etc).

At Cognitive Robots, we have developed the first embryonic brain called “Cognitive Brain for Service Robotics” -CR-B100-, which integrates all these four aspects, in a patent pending software.
We have tested the “brain” in several “bodies” with great results.
