RADII and Brandnographer, in partnership with AGLA and Shanghai Creative collective, present the inaugural FUTURE OF X forum at Hangzhou’s 2050 Conference for youth in science, technology, art, and design, taking place May 25-27th, 2018 in Cloud Town.
Robotics have come a long way from comic book fantasies and cult film classics. Today, the intelligent, humanlike robots that captivated science fiction writers are closer to reality than ever before. Sophia is a hyper-intelligent robot backed by some of the industry’s most advanced AI, and she’s the most recent stage in that evolution. The robot made waves when she debuted for her advanced AI, eerily human conversation abilities, and string of non-traditional robot accolades (Sophia is the first robot to win a title from the United Nations, and the first robot to receive legal citizenship, having become a proud citizen of Saudi Arabia in 2017).
David Chen of Hanson Robotics, along with Sophia herself, will join RADII at the FUTURE OF X series at 2050, to talk about humans, robots, and the space between. The two will explain to audiences their vision for the FUTURE OF ROBOTICS, and why the idea of a robot in every home is no longer a far-off concept.
Date May 27th, 2018
Time 1:30PM – 2:00PM
About our Speaker
Sophia is Hanson Robotics’ latest and most advanced robot to date and a cultural icon. She has become a media darling, appearing on major media outlets around the world, igniting the interest of people regardless of age, gender, and culture, even gracing the cover of one of the top fashion magazines. Her press coverage has a reach of over ten billion readers in 2017.
Sophia is a highly sought-after speaker in business and has met face-to-face with key decision makers in banking, insurance, auto manufacturing, property development, media, and entertainment. In addition, she has appeared onstage as a panel member and presenter in high-level conferences, covering how robotics and artificial intelligence will become a prevalent part of people’s lives. Her reputation extends beyond business into the global social arena. She was named the world’s first United Nation Innovation Champion by United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and will have an official role in working with UNDP to promote sustainable development and safeguard human rights and equality.
Sophia is an evolving genius machine. Her incredible human likeness, expressiveness, and remarkable story as an awakening robot over time makes her a fascinating front-page technology story.
Sophia’s creator, Dr. David Hanson, is the founder of Hanson Robotics and a modern-day renaissance man who has built a worldwide reputation for creating robots that look and act amazingly human. After working at Disney as an “Imagineer,” Dr. Hanson aspired to create genius machines that will surpass human intelligence. Dr. Hanson believes that three distinctively human traits must be integrated into the artificial intelligence of these genius machines: Creativity, empathy, and compassion. As an extension of human intelligence, Hanson Robotics’ genius machines can evolve to solve world problems too complex for humans to solve themselves. Sophia personifies this bold and responsible goal.
Mr. David Chen is a seasoned business leader and entrepreneur with over 20 years of global experience focusing on investments, operations, and business development in China and the United States. Mr. Chen co-founded AngelVest (angelvestgroup.com), an investment interest group helping individual angel investors identify and invest in early stage companies in Greater China.
Notably, Mr. Chen has been the CFO and Board member of Hanson Robotics (hansonrobotics.com) since its Series A financing – the world’s leading company in producing human-like robots with artificial intelligence technology. Mr. Chen has been instrumental in helping Hanson Robotics secure additional financing and in developing its strategic growth plans.
