Why Attend

The AUVSI New England events attract senior C-Suite level decision makers and industry shakers. The inaugural AI/ML for Autonomy Summit seeks to maintain that tradition. We learned how to move from vision and planning, to execution and operations.   

There are a number of recent and current government initiatives intended to enable the rapid growth the US drone industry. AI/ML Autonomy is the subject of policy and promises to allow these new vehicle entrants to achieve scales for economic success. 

The commercial drone industry is calling out for more clearly defined opportunities to participate in and expand this new economy. The Robotica AI/ML Summit offers critical insights into real world opportunities and collaborative programs where vendors, developers and program managers can find resources and partners to advance the ecosystem, and their bottom line.

The Pitch Fest at the Robotica AI/ML Summit is a fast paced session that allows attendees to take the stage and introduce themselves to the community with short, three minute, one slide pitches.  It is an opportunity for researchers to be heard, for start-up companies to introduce themselves and for legacy firms to make product announcements.  Interested speakers sign up during registration.





Find your role and secure your future in the rapid growth UAS ecosystem.
