Event Details

As the pace of development in AI and robotics accelerates, organisations that quickly adopt and embed these technologies will significantly outpace their competitors. Join this presentation as Muen shares the inspiring story of a Boston Dynamics Spot's journey at SA Power Networks, and illustrates how a strong cross-departmental, cross-disciplinary collaborative culture is essential for realising the value of emerging technologies in traditional work processes, both in the field and the office.

Discover how the team explored use cases with strategic alignment, achieved success through in-house development, and what the future may hold for human-AI collaborations.

  • The benefits of utilising a walking quadruped robot for field work.
  • The power of cross-functional collaboration between Engineering, IT, and Field teams to uncover use cases and co-design solutions.
  • How AI adoption drives the demand for high-quality data and the role of robotics in meeting that demand.
  • Practical steps for initiating this journey in your organisation.
