USING robotic technology in agriculture will feature at the Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (RAI) industry showcase which returns in a virtual format on May 25-27 2021.

The three-day online event, organised by KTN, will give UK farming the chance to understand the latest in industrial robotics and AI innovation, and is expected to attract more than 1000 delegates from across all sectors and will feature more than 50 innovation and research-driven exhibitors on its virtual show floor.

Attendees will be able to learn about the latest in robotics and AI technology applications and how they could be adapted to serve different sectors from healthcare to defence and manufacturing to agri-food, while exhibitors will have the chance to connect with potential customers, collaborators, and investors.

Marie Emerson, robotics knowledge transfer manager at KTN, said: “Industry, business and society priorities have changed as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. The focus is now on maintaining necessary services such as feeding the global population, keeping individuals healthy and safe, and maintaining economic stability.

"Organisations in sectors from healthcare to agriculture, and all those in between, are waiting for technology to create efficiencies and solutions for a more resilient, safer, and sustainable future, but those technologies may already exist in other sectors or the excellent UK research base.

“This showcase is about exploring the potential for robotics and AI to have greater positive impact in all reaches of industry and society, and connecting the best people to make it happen. It will celebrate advances in robotics and the AI that drives it, whilst highlighting the role of these technologies in driving recovery post-Covid-19 and beyond. It will not simply show potential users the possibilities open to them, but will also connect innovators with new partners and new opportunities, accelerating ambitious ideas into real-world solutions.”
