The Robot Revolution: Where Is It Headed?

By January 26, 2018Blog

LMGPR is a big proponent of robots.

We’ve been part of some of the biggest robot launches over the past few years including Knightscope’s K1, K5 and K7 crime-fighting robots, and UBTECH’s Lynx with Amazon Alexa, Star Wars Stormtrooper Robot, and STEM-friendly line of Jimu Robots, to name a few.

We are constantly amazed at how robot innovation is changing the world around us and are excited to see what the future holds.

A new video series from AJ+ takes an in-depth look at the emergence of robots and asks some tough questions surrounding what it means for jobs, society and our way of life. Knightscope founder William Santana Li is among those featured in the series along with the Knightscope fleet of robots.

We’ve watched the series here at LMGPR and found it compelling to say the least.

“Since watching The Jetsons, robots have captured my attention,” said LMGPR President Donna Loughlin Michaels. “It is exciting to see fantasy come to life but I hope robots augment–not replace–jobs and simple tasks as aggressively as some futurists predict. I can’t replace my creative and media savvy PR team with robots, that’s for certain.”

We invite you to watch the series below and join the discussion on where the robot revolution is headed.
