Dialogue about robots: Dmitri Grishin (CEO, co-founder of Grishin Robotics), Pavel Kyshelev (Anchorman of
The debate will go on creating startups in robotics - addressing the major mistakes and success stories

12:30 – 13:00 Networking
13:00 – 13:30 Humans and robots - aspects of interaction
This session will bring together researchers and practitioners experts to discuss the latest developments in the field social robotics. This is a new multidisciplinary direction in modern science studies robots that are capable of interact and communicate with each other, with people and with the surrounding environment within the social and cultural fabric of the corresponding directly to the role and functions of the target robot. Emphasis will be placed on the interaction between people and on the integration of robots and robots in our society. Experts students will present the report stresses the importance of various socio-cultural aspects in the interaction and robot human. In addition to the social side of the interaction will be discuss the technical aspects and trends in the development of the concept of robotic assistants. The session will be interesting to a wide audience as representatives robotics, IT and technical disciplines and researchers in psychology, sociology and other humanities.
