The Robots are Coming!

by Bernard Murphy

Moshe Sheier, VP Marketing at CEVA, recently got back from MWC Shanghai and commented that robots are clearly trending. He saw hordes of robots from dozens of companies, begging for someone to brand and offer them in any one of many possible applications: in an airport to guide you to a connecting flight, for elder care, in hospitals for food and drug delivery, in education for learning about robotics and programming but also as assistants in dealing with special needs kids, food delivery in restaurants, the list is endless. Think of this as the next big thing after smart speakers (Amazon already has 100k+ robots working in their warehouses, so obviously they’re working on home robots as a sequel to the Echo).
