The Future of Automate

April 27, 2023

The forthcoming Automate 2023 Conference will return to Detroit this spring, nearly a year after the previous event. The event will be held over the course of four days from May 22-25. With the growth of the automation industry, along with increased attention with AI, Automate 2023 is slated to be a game-changing trade show.

What can visitors expect to see at the highly anticipated Automate 2023? And how will the latest resurgence of AI factor into the event?

In talking about the upcoming conference, Calvary Robotics’s Vice President of Sales, Michael Marseglia, interviewed Jeff Burnstein, the President of the Association for Advancing Automation — the organizing body behind Automate. The two talked about the quick announcement of Automate 2023 following 2022’s, the evolution of robotics, what this year’s conference will offer, and why AI is playing a bigger role this year.

In this episode, Marseglia and Burnstein also explored …

  1. The successes and high demand for the conference in relation to the automation industry’s growth
  2. How engineers can benefit from the educational opportunities at the event
  3. How AI will impact this year’s event and the automation industry in general

“There’s so much interest in how AI can be applied to robotics and how it works with machine vision that I think we’ll see continued growth in that part of the show. Now, of course, everybody’s talking about ChatGPT — we’re hoping to have speakers there talking about how that can be applied to robotics. Because whether it’s developing new software to make it easier for the customer to use, this is what customers tell us, ‘What can we do to make this easier? How do we give more insights from the technology?’ If AI can assist with that, that’s a great thing,” said Burnstein.

Jeff Burnstein is the Founder and President of the Association for Advancing Automation. He has held that position for almost four decades alongside his role as president for several other robotic and automations organizations. Burnstein is also a graduate of the University of Michigan.
