Generating 1/4 of all global system-wide sales, his team is unwavering in driving long term performance premiums and enduring loyalty for Marriott as the largest provider of hotel-based drinking and dining experiences in the world. Prior to his return to F+B in 2016, Von Ertfelda led the Insight, Strategy & Innovation team at Marriott International, an internal innovation incubator and accelerator responsible for developing strategies, product and service innovations that deepen guest loyalty and generate profitable growth across Marriott’s portfolio of brands.

Dr. Kate Darling, Leading Expert in Robot Ethics and MIT Media Lab Research Specialist, to Keynote Questex’s Sensors Converge

Dr. Darling’s keynote “The Future of Human-Robot Interaction” will include a demonstration with one of her own domestic robots to offer a window into how robotics technology is poised to change the way we relate to each other and our own humanity – and why it matters

NEW YORK, April 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Questex’s Fierce Technology Group today announces Dr. Kate Darling, will deliver a keynote address on “The Future of Human-Robot Interaction” at Sensors Converge 2022. Sensors Converge takes place June 27-29 at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California. Register here.

With the help of sensors, robots are able to see and feel.

An added feature to her keynote presentation is an exciting and engaging on-stage demonstration with one of her own domestic robots. She is the caretaker of several robots including Pleos Yochai, Peter, and Mr. Spaghetti.

Dr. Darling’s session will draw from her recent work and will answer questions such as:

What happens when robots move from behind factory walls into shared spaces and begin interacting with humans?
What opportunities and challenges should we anticipate in the future of human-robot interaction?
Where does the true potential of AI and robotics lie, and will robots supplement human ability, or replace it?
Why do people treat robots like living things, and why does that matter?
What can and can’t robots and AI do?
What societal challenges will we face in a future with robots (ethical, legal, social)?

“We are honored to have the leading expert in robotics ethics, Dr. Kate Darling, deliver a keynote at Sensors Converge 2022,” said Charlene Soucy, Senior Director, Technology – Sensors & Electronics. “Her work is groundbreaking and thought-provoking. As sensor technologies and embedded systems are intrinsic to the operation of robots, she is the perfect person to deliver a keynote at Sensors Converge.”

She has a background in law and economics and intellectual property, and has taken a role as intellectual property expert at multiple academic and private institutions, including her current role at MIT Media Lab. Dr. Darling’s work has been featured in Vogue, The New Yorker, The Guardian, BBC, NPR, PBS, The Boston Globe, Forbes, CBC, WIRED, Boston Magazine, The Atlantic, Slate, Die Zeit, The Japan Times, and more.
