I was invited last month to moderate a panel discussion on the “Robotics Renaissance” at the 2013 Open Innovations Forum in Moscow. The brainchild of Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, the Forum – now in its second year – was conceived as a launch point for stimulating Russia’s innovation prospects and furthering international investment in a country that has often been the home of scientific breakthrough and discovery, but which has regularly struggled to benefit from these economically.

NEW-russian-robot-companies Susan McFarland, of robotguide, a site providing a guide to personal robots, compiled a list of Russian robotics companies which we vetted and posted to our Global Map of Robot Providers.
25 new Russian robot companies were added to our existing database of Russian robotics companies: 38% startups (of which 2/3 are companies building robots for various uses and 1/3 are providing software or vision systems), 17% are providing service robots for governmental and corporate use, 8% are for space or defense, and 8% are education-related. The remaining 29% are ancillary businesses such as integrators, software developers, vision systems providers and component manufacturers.
See all except the ancillary businesses on the Global Map; ancillary businesses can be found in the Ancillary Businesses Directory.

Most Russian robotics companies are clustered in north-western Russia, i.e., in St. Petersburg and Moscow, which corresponds to the main business and financial centers of the federation.

The Russian Federation has a traditional and strong history in science and engineering. These days that pool of learning and manpower is much more open and accessible than it was during Soviet times. This change has brought with it goods from outside the Federation, increased competition, and less need for the country to produce all the machines and products that it needs.

Forbes has once again expanded their "30 under 30" list this year to celebrate the achievements of the up and coming; the main list now covers 20 different sectors, and an inaugural European edition has also been released, with 10 sectors. While the expansion of the list dilutes the brand (it's more like "900 under 30"), it does highlight some interesting trends in robotics, AI and automation. Advanced manufacturing, conversational systems and human-augmented AI are key themes on this year's list. And you'll recognize some of these bright young minds from their contributions on Robohub.
