We aim to create awareness around both the R&D needs and the potential at the intersection of robotics, AI and IoT. As robotics technology evolves, we at SoftBank Robotics predict that the acceleration of personal, social robots will be the next big thing in the robotics sector. We believe that robots will play a key role in everyday life, and that we will soon co-exist with robots, leading to smarter, healthier, and happier lives. The SoftBank Robotics R&D and Innovation team is quickly establishing itself as a leader in the field of humanoid robotics by being committed to creating an intelligent and harmonious ecosystem through IoT with robots. We'll illustrate some of the use cases SoftBank Robotics has implemented to better understand the companionship between humans and robots, highlight some of the research and subsequent results towards achieving that goal, present the feedback from users, and conclude by outlining some of the grand challenges ahead.
