David Hanson and his Mika - the first ever AI CEO

15:30 - 16:30

Hanson Robotics has been making history for 16 years. A story full of revolutions and successes in the AI industry. Over the years, the brand has grown and become stronger. How? By constantly keeping up with developments and trends of the industry, showing courage and having a strong team that pulls together. All the while keeping one goal in mind: bringing robots to life in the truest sense of the word.

Hanson's AI framework incorporates symbolic reasoning and a hypergraph knowledge base, combined with various deep learning tools and numerous machine perception technologies within a unified platform for R&D and products.

In the process, robots are emerging, as human-like as possible, as holistic AI platforms. This enables users to engage in social activities, explore the world and move toward a total spectrum of human-like intelligence.

Hear from David Hanson himself about the future of his AI, what developments to expect, and what makes his most advanced robots so special. Don't miss this opportunity to learn and discuss from one of the leading minds in the industry! FH Salzburg's CEO Dominik Engel will accompany you through the lecture and enter into discussion with Hanson afterwards.

The lecture will take place as part of the Open House on 17 March 2023 at 3.30 pm in the Audimax on the Urstein Campus.
