I presented my work and talked on 2 days at the very amazing http://www.iftf.org/tech Conference presented by the one and ONLY David Pescovitz http://pesco.net/

As smart machines enter more realms of our lives—from workplaces and homes to farms and city streets—we will redefine what machines can do for us, where they will outperform us, and ultimately, what it means to be human. Robots have long been a staple of science fiction, capturing the popular imagination for nearly a century. Now, driven by military, consumer, and health care research, advances in robotics are catching up with popular imagination. Robotic systems are not only vacuuming millions of living rooms, but have also been deployed into active war zones, and navigated thousands of miles of roadway without human assistance. Indeed, within just the last five years, the number of robots in operation worldwide has more than doubled. http://www.iftf.org/
