2014 Xconomy Forum

The 2014 Xconomy Forum: Robo Madness, held in the theater at SRI International in Menlo Park, proved once again, that contacts and relationships are as important as innovation, intellectual property, long hours and a PhD. Breaks and an after-event reception for networking, exchanging cards and promises to meet and discuss things further were an integral part of the day’s program. Silicon Valley and visiting tech and robotics-related stars were there in spades: Scott Hassan, Brian Gerkey, Paolo Pirjanian,  Helen Greiner, James Gosling, David Mindell and John Markoff to name just a few.
