There is no doubt that robots are proliferating the meetings industry. From those that patrol resorts as an added security detail to others that deliver luggage and serve as a concierge, odds are you will encounter one during the next meeting or event you plan. Here are a few that have become celebrities of sort in the meeting world.
Sophia the Robot
With long fluttery eyelashes and expressive eyes, Sophia, Hanson Robotics’ most advanced humanoid robot who can easily be mistaken for a living and breathing woman if it wasn’t for the metal cap, is a popular addition to meetings and conferences.
Sophia maintains eye contact, blinks, follows conversations, and moves her arms. Not only is she a popular keynote speaker, but she is available to visit a tradeshow floor to pose for photos that are often posted on social media and interact with attendees.
