Kuri’s Co-Founder and CTO at SXSW 2018

We’re excited to share that Kuri’s Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer Kaijen Hsiao will be presenting a talk at this week’s SXSW entitled You, Me & a Robot Makes 3 — Tomorrow’s Modern Family. South by Southwest (SXSW) is an annual conference that celebrates the convergence of the interactive, film, and music industries and boasts itself as being the premier destination for discovery.

What better place to discuss the robotics industry than this celebration of discovery at SXSW? From you car to to your office, robots are here! With advancements in engineering and AI, intelligent robots are at our fingertips. Kaijen predicts they’ll be popularized in our homes in the near future.

Kaijen’s presentation poses the question: How do you create a robot that people will accept within their homes? In answering this question, our CTO will share how our team at Mayfield Robotics design robots (like Kuri!) with personality and cutting-edge technology to understand how humans interact and better bridge the gap between robotics and mainstream society.

If you’ll be attending this year’s SXSW, we’d love for you to come hear from our talented Co-Founder and CTO for yourself. Kaijen will be speaking on March 10th from 9:30-10:30 am CDT at the Hilton Austin Downtown, Salon DE (500 E 4th St.) in Austin, TX.
