Gordon Baker, policy lead for robotics, UK Department of Science, Innovation & Technology (DSIT), has been announced as a speaker at this year’s Robotics and Automation Exhibition.
Baker works across government to make the case for robotics in multiple sectors, including the commercial use of drones. He has for some years coordinated the Drone Industry Action Group and the Robotics Growth Partnership, and was a co-author of the 2022 publication Advancing Airborne Autonomy.
The policy leader will be discussing how robotics and automation can help deliver societal goals, including the current landscape of support for ‘smart machines’ and a vision for the sector’s future, as part of the thought leadership agenda. His session begins at 12.05pm on 19 March, Day 1 of the show.
At the Robotics & Automation Exhibition, which takes place on 19-20 March 2024 at the NEC Birmingham, Baker will discuss the government and DSIT’s aim to transform the UK into a global leader in the deployment of smart machines across a range of industries.
Baker joins a leading line-up of speakers at the Robotics and Automation Exhibition, which will feature both case-study presentations from exhibitors focussing on the benefits of their products and services along with sessions delivered by industry thought-leaders and experts in robotics and automation.
Some of the standout speakers confirmed to share their in-depth knowledge and drawing on decades of industry experience include: Esyin Chew, director, Eureka Robotics Centre; Renata Pinedo, general manager, Körber Supply Chain; and Jonathan Gorst, deputy head of the department of management, Sheffield Business School, among many others!
What’s more, the Robotics and Automation Exhibition will be co-located with fellow Akabo Media events, IntraLogisteX 2024 – the UK’s premier intralogistics and materials handling exhibition, and the Sustainable Supply Chain Exhibition – the UK’s largest exhibition dedicated to these technologies, to form the overarching Logistics, Supply Chain and Automation Expo.
As a result, visitors who register for any of these events will also be able to access all three exhibitions and conference theatres with one ticket. The co-location also means an immediate gain in the number of exhibiting companies and qualifying professional visitors, with more than 8,000 buyers expected.
Additionally, the Logistics, Supply Chain and Automation Expo will see the official launch of Aurora Insights – Akabo Media’s brand-new research and consultancy division, which will encompass data-based reports, executive summaries and a monthly podcast, exploring the latest trends and innovations in urban mobility, sustainability, supply chain, logistics, and robotics and automation.
