The conference is divided into eight themed sections devoted to the use of robotics in the fields of medicine, industry, agriculture, driverless technology, education, deep learning, design and marketing.

This year’s speakers include investors and industry leaders such as Manohar Paluri from Facebook AI Research; Nathan Harding, the cofounder of Ekso Bionics; Andra Keay, head of the Silicon Valley Robotics industry group and others.

About 80 experts from around the world, including the U.S., Germany, France, Singapore, Denmark, India, Israel and Australia, will take part in Skolkovo Robotics 2016, along with representatives of venture capital funds.
