Looking for 10 startups to present their technology during Lightning Talks and participate at the Lunch Exhibit - April 5 @Boston Marriott Cambridge.
OVERVIEW: Autonomous systems such as robots, drones, and autonomous vehicles are increasingly becoming a common element of human society. However, how to make autonomous systems more intelligent, more efficient, safer, and better aligned with human values remains to be a big challenge. The MIT Schwarzman College of Computing invests in new artificial intelligence, data science, and computer science research to advance the state of the art in autonomous systems. The 2023 MIT AI and Autonomy Conference will showcase the most recent developments in areas including networked robotics, human level perception, reinforcement learning, and computational cognitive science. Presented by the MIT Schwarzman College of Computing and the MIT Industrial Liaison Program, you will hear insights from MIT faculty, MIT Startup Exchange entrepreneurs, and industry executives from presentations, lightning talks, exhibitions, and a panel discussion.
KEY THEMES (among other related ones for AI and Autonomy): autonomous vehicles, autonomous drones, safe autonomous systems, navigation in dynamic uncertain environments, robotics (networked, distributed, collaborative, etc.), robot manipulation and learning, representation learning/modeling, embodied intelligence, energy-efficient ML, computer vision, design and manufacturing.
Selected startups must: prepare slide deck for a 5-min talk as per guidelines provided; and participate in a virtual dry run to review slide deck, where needed.
These events are attended by several hundred ILP global corporate members represented by senior executives, as well as by others from the ecosystem, and provide an excellent forum for exploring partnerships and collaboration opportunities between startups and industry.
Note: selection will be on a rolling basis, so apply ASAP.
To apply, please provide the following:
Disclaimer: MIT Startup Exchange can make introductions that ideally provide open ended discussions in order to share mutual interests and potentially create common ground that incite the parties to collaborate. MIT Startup Exchange introductions may eventually lead to mutual partnerships, but that is not in any way guaranteed by MIT, MIT Corporate Relations, MIT Industrial Liaison Program (ILP) or MIT Startup Exchange, which takes no responsibility for these outcomes and no formal part in such discussions following our introduction. MIT Startup Exchange and its activities and events are not for purposes of soliciting investment or offering securities.
