Robotics Asia 2012 – The Future of Artificial Intelligence

What does the future hold for robot­ics? What is the next step, or the next tech­no­log­i­cal bound­ary to over­come? The gen­er­al trend for com­put­ers seems to be faster pro­cess­ing speed, greater mem­o­ry capac­i­ty and so on. One would assume that the robots of the future would become clos­er and clos­er to the deci­sion-mak­ing abil­i­ty of humans and also more inde­pen­dent.

Great advances in sci­ence and tech­nol­o­gy have ensured that humans need not do any­thing on their own, espe­cial­ly with automa­tion enter­ing all facets of human life. It is believed that by 2040, we will achieve the orig­i­nal goal of robot­ics and a the­mat­ic main­stay of sci­ence fic­tion: a freely mov­ing machine with the intel­lec­tu­al capa­bil­i­ties of a human being.

In view of a robot-filled future, the Min­istry of Sci­ence, Tech­nol­o­gy and Inno­va­tion (MOSTI), Malaysia Asso­ci­a­tion of Research Sci­en­tists (MARS), SIRIM, M3 Glob­al and Pro­temp Exhi­bi­tions Sdn Bhd are delight­ed to bring you Robot­ics Asia 2012, run­ning in its first ever debut, and the biggest robot­ics show ever to be held in the region. With par­tic­i­pa­tion from pio­neers in robot­ics tech­nol­o­gy, Robot­ics Asia aims to intro­duce the lat­est in com­mer­cial and indus­tri­al robot­ics design from var­i­ous sec­tors includ­ing aero­nau­ti­cal, aero­space, agri­cul­ture, health­care, and edu­ca­tion.

This event will allow you to wit­ness inge­nious cre­ations from world lead­ers in robot­ics tech­nol­o­gy from Japan, South Korea, Unit­ed States, Unit­ed King­dom and all around the globe. The exhi­bi­tion, held along­side the 12th Malaysia Tech­nol­o­gy Expo 2012 — the largest most pop­u­lar inven­tion and inno­va­tion exhi­bi­tion in the region, promis­es to be an awe- inspir­ing land­mark occa­sion.

Imag­ine going through every­day life with­out the con­ve­nience of a car’s auto­mat­ed respons­es? Think again. How could you have ever saved enough time for that cru­cial lunch appoint­ment with­out the handy assis­tance of your robot­ic vac­u­um clean­er? Pon­der about it. The world is evolv­ing at top-speed, and at this accel­er­a­tion, it’s impos­si­ble for humans to con­stant­ly make super-fast break­throughs with­out the aid of our robot­ic chums.

Ser­vice robots like Room­ba, Robo­mop and Robo­Mow­er have instan­ta­neous­ly increased our time to live and enjoy. In the hard­core indus­tri­al sec­tors, robot­ics inter­ven­tion has tak­en over assem­bly tasks which are repet­i­tive and unin­tel­li­gent, or exer­cise any deci­sion-mak­ing skills. While com­mer­cial robot­ics has its pop­u­lar share of the pie in the mar­ket, mod­ern indus­tri­al robots are true mar­vels of engi­neer­ing. Though the ear­li­est appli­ca­tions were in mate­ri­als han­dling, spot weld­ing, and spray paint­ing, jobs that were hot, heavy, and haz­ardous such as die cast­ing, forg­ing, and spot weld­ing; these days, indus­tri­al robots have expand­ed far and wide to include com­plex areas such as man­u­fac­tur­ing, assem­bly and logis­tics, just to name a few.

As our pop­u­la­tion ages and the num­ber of wage earn­ers become a small­er frac­tion of our pop­u­la­tion, it is clear that robots have to fill the void in soci­ety. Indus­tri­al, and to a greater extent, ser­vice robots have the poten­tial to fill this void in the inevitable future.

This spec­tac­u­lar trade fair is aimed at pro­mot­ing the region­al and inter­na­tion­al play­ers involved in the robot­ics sec­tor, by pro­vid­ing a com­mon plat­form to access and col­lab­o­rate with poten­tial buy­ers, major dis­trib­u­tors and indus­try peers under one roof. It will show­case the most inven­tive tech­nolo­gies and tools relat­ed to the robot­ics sec­tor. Robot­ics Asia

2012 will be a ben­e­fi­cial event for entre­pre­neurs, buy­ers, deal­ers and automa­tion sec­tor pro­fes­sion­als look­ing for new inno­va­tions in this field, and who are will­ing to devel­op long- last­ing part­ner­ship and deals.

As such, this region­al event which receives world­wide atten­tion is a superb avenue to meet key deci­sion-mak­ers such as aca­d­e­m­ic sci­en­tists, agents, buy­ers, con­sul­tants, con­trac­tors, deal­ers, devel­op­ers and design engi­neers, dis­trib­u­tors, engi­neer­ing pro­fes­sion­als, exporters, importers, man­u­fac­tur­ers, investors, and many, many more! If you’re seek­ing for the lat­est inven­tion that would spur mil­lions to sub­scribe to, look­ing out for a pos­si­ble part­ner to invest in your brain­child, or sim­ply curi­ous to be inspired by the world of inven­tions and inno­va­tions – you wouldn’t want to miss out on this occas­sion that attracts over 20,000 vis­i­tors from coun­tries all over the globe.

Among the high­lights arranged for the event include: an awe-inspir­ing exhi­bi­tion that pro­vides a com­pre­hen­sive land­scape of progress in robot­ics sci­ence; a busi­ness-match­ing ses­sion that gives you the valu­able oppor­tu­ni­ty to expand your busi­ness hori­zons and dis­cov­er new and excit­ing avenues to explore and use to your advan­tage; tech­ni­cal sem­i­nars, prod­uct demon­stra­tions and a net­work­ing cock­tail.

Hyp­ing this up is the 11th Malaysia Inven­tion & Inno­va­tion Awards 2012 which rec­og­nizes exem­plary and out­stand­ing inven­tions and inno­va­tions with­in a mul­ti­tude of tech­nol­o­gy indus­tries. The Awards iden­ti­fies sci­en­tists and researchers that have achieved excel­lence in the com­mer­cial­iza­tion of research & devel­op­ment, prod­ucts and ser­vices. Be a part of a region­al robot­ics pow­er­house that crowns genius­es, con­nects you with mega per­son­al­i­ties, and paves the path for your busi­ness to meta­mor­phose ideas to bank accounts!

This is also an incred­i­ble oppor­tu­ni­ty to be an offi­cial spon­sor — adver­tise and active­ly pro­mote your com­pa­ny / brand name at the biggest region­al robot­ics event – draw atten­tion, make a name, reg­is­ter your brand in vis­i­tors’ minds, cre­ate brand aware­ness, achieve broad expo­sure, and rake in the sales leads that you desire. What’s more, this is also your chance to build new busi­ness con­tacts and valu­able rela­tion­ships.
