Next week’s TAO Tech Talk will feature a presentation on Industry 4.0 from two of the founders of Tend.ai. Robert Kieffer, the company’s CTO, and James Gentes, Tend’s Chief Product Officer (and co-founder of StartupBend) plan to discus the incoming wave of automation and how Tend is creating an OS to power the next generation of robots.
Pretty cool stuff. We’ll be there. You should too. The event is scheduled from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 9 at Thump Coffee inside of the Tech Center. Register before you go.
This is not Industry 4.0, but it is a robot dance party.
Here’s a bit more about Robert and James:
