  • 00:00:17,043 --> 00:00:19,756

  • My name is Colin Angle and

  • 2

  • 00:00:19,756 --> 00:00:23,709

  • I founded my company 'iRobot' 23 years ago

  • 3

  • 00:00:23,709 --> 00:00:28,793

  • with a single focus to make robots practical.

  • 4

  • 00:00:28,793 --> 00:00:34,840

  • In 1962, there was an American cartoon,

  • 5

  • 00:00:34,840 --> 00:00:38,626

  • called The Jetsons with Rosie the robot.

  • 6

  • 00:00:38,626 --> 00:00:41,681

  • And when the world saw Rosie,

  • 7

  • 00:00:41,681 --> 00:00:46,517

  • we all knew what the next big thing was going to be.

  • 8

  • 00:00:46,517 --> 00:00:50,792

  • Unfortunately 40 years passed,

  • 9

  • 00:00:50,792 --> 00:00:53,542

  • and it didn't happen.

  • 10

  • 00:00:53,542 --> 00:00:56,542

  • What I'd like to spend a few minutes with you today talking about,

  • 11

  • 00:00:56,542 --> 00:01:03,543

  • is the acceleration and coming of age of the robot industry.

  • 12

  • 00:01:03,543 --> 00:01:05,668

  • We are starting to see around the world

  • 13

  • 00:01:05,668 --> 00:01:11,442

  • applications where robots are actually making a difference.

  • 14

  • 00:01:11,442 --> 00:01:15,347

  • And we are actually seeing exciting new businesses

  • 15

  • 00:01:15,347 --> 00:01:20,619

  • spring up and change how we think about the world and how

  • 16

  • 00:01:20,619 --> 00:01:25,042

  • we think about machines.

  • 17

  • 00:01:25,042 --> 00:01:33,377

  • The important realization was that robots do not look like this.

  • 18

  • 00:01:33,377 --> 00:01:37,767

  • Instead, if you want to make a business, if you want robots in our world

  • 19

  • 00:01:37,767 --> 00:01:41,292

  • we need to think about what are the challenges

  • 20

  • 00:01:41,292 --> 00:01:45,776

  • that face people on a daily basis,

  • 21

  • 00:01:45,776 --> 00:01:49,279

  • and to think about how

  • 22

  • 00:01:49,279 --> 00:01:52,182

  • we can create intelligent machines

  • 23

  • 00:01:52,182 --> 00:01:57,792

  • that can deliver more value then they cost to produce.

  • 24

  • 00:01:57,792 --> 00:01:59,376

  • If we can do that,

  • 25

  • 00:01:59,376 --> 00:02:02,662

  • we have created a great business.

  • 26

  • 00:02:02,662 --> 00:02:07,958

  • If we make something that is an amazing and exciting demonstration,

  • 27

  • 00:02:07,958 --> 00:02:11,459

  • we have made an exciting demonstration that had

  • 28

  • 00:02:11,459 --> 00:02:15,876

  • very little impact on the world.

  • 29

  • 00:02:15,876 --> 00:02:20,011

  • I believe that for every successful robot product

  • 30

  • 00:02:20,011 --> 00:02:25,295

  • there are many thousands of demonstration of robots.

  • 31

  • 00:02:25,295 --> 00:02:28,961

  • To give you an example of a success,

  • 32

  • 00:02:28,961 --> 00:02:35,047

  • where by abandoning traditional notions of what a robot should be

  • 33

  • 00:02:35,047 --> 00:02:38,548

  • we have created something of real impact,

  • 34

  • 00:02:38,548 --> 00:02:41,766

  • we can look at vacuuming robots.

  • 35

  • 00:02:41,766 --> 00:02:43,797

  • So this is the 'Roomba'.

  • 36

  • 00:02:43,797 --> 00:02:48,572

  • This is my robot. We've sold over 10 million of these robots.

  • 37

  • 00:02:48,572 --> 00:02:52,341

  • And I think people would find it surprising if I told you

  • 38

  • 00:02:52,341 --> 00:02:56,714

  • that 15 percent of all of the money spent in the world

  • 39

  • 00:02:56,714 --> 00:03:01,547

  • on vacuuming cleaners today is now spent on robots.

  • 40

  • 00:03:01,547 --> 00:03:03,048

  • And in fact,

  • 41

  • 00:03:03,048 --> 00:03:07,048

  • in a few countries

  • 42

  • 00:03:07,048 --> 00:03:10,994

  • the number one selling vacuuming the entire country is now

  • 43

  • 00:03:10,994 --> 00:03:12,846

  • a robot.

  • 44

  • 00:03:12,846 --> 00:03:17,680

  • This is an example of what can happen

  • 45

  • 00:03:17,680 --> 00:03:20,679

  • when you actually get it right.

  • 46

  • 00:03:20,679 --> 00:03:22,680

  • You actually say, well, people don't want to vacuum,

  • 47

  • 00:03:22,680 --> 00:03:25,512

  • people don't have time to vacuum.

  • 48

  • 00:03:25,512 --> 00:03:27,846

  • So how do we solve that?

  • 49

  • 00:03:27,846 --> 00:03:29,982

  • Another example

  • 50

  • 00:03:29,982 --> 00:03:34,288

  • of where robots are creating value

  • 51

  • 00:03:34,288 --> 00:03:38,723

  • is in very dangerous situations.

  • 52

  • 00:03:38,723 --> 00:03:41,292

  • In 2002,

  • 53

  • 00:03:41,292 --> 00:03:45,496

  • wethere was a great challenge in Afghanistan. The United States

  • 54

  • 00:03:45,496 --> 00:03:47,465

  • sent soldiers to Afghanistan.

  • 55

  • 00:03:47,465 --> 00:03:49,802

  • And we were watching television and they told us how

  • 56

  • 00:03:49,802 --> 00:03:52,262

  • the soldiers would have ropes

  • 57

  • 00:03:52,262 --> 00:03:56,374

  • tied around their waists to go into the caves in Afghanistan.

  • 58

  • 00:03:56,374 --> 00:03:58,512

  • So if they were hurt or shot,

  • 59

  • 00:03:58,512 --> 00:04:01,430

  • you could drag the solider out

  • 60

  • 00:04:01,430 --> 00:04:03,380

  • using that rope.

  • 61

  • 00:04:03,380 --> 00:04:06,720

  • And we said that was a crazy, crazy thing.

  • 62

  • 00:04:06,720 --> 00:04:09,346

  • Why has not technology solved this problem?

  • 63

  • 00:04:09,346 --> 00:04:12,122

  • Why are people doing that instead of a robot?

  • 64

  • 00:04:12,122 --> 00:04:14,826

  • So, we had a project to make a robot,

  • 65

  • 00:04:14,826 --> 00:04:16,793

  • we sent it over to Afghanistan,

  • 66

  • 00:04:16,793 --> 00:04:22,099

  • we sent it into caves. We found some very, very scary things.

  • 67

  • 00:04:22,099 --> 00:04:26,034

  • This is all automatic weapon, ammunition, and explosives

  • 68

  • 00:04:26,034 --> 00:04:29,394

  • founded in a cave by the robot.

  • 69

  • 00:04:29,394 --> 00:04:31,441

  • And we made a difference.

  • 70

  • 00:04:31,441 --> 00:04:32,876

  • Perhaps,

  • 71

  • 00:04:32,876 --> 00:04:38,977

  • the most easy to understand and graphical way of the difference

  • 72

  • 00:04:38,977 --> 00:04:42,227

  • I will demonstrate with two short videos.

  • 73

  • 00:04:42,227 --> 00:04:46,309

  • Both happened in the streets of Iraq.

  • 74

  • 00:04:46,309 --> 00:04:52,096

  • The first demonstrated here where you have a humvee,

  • 75

  • 00:04:52,096 --> 00:04:53,478

  • (can we have the sound up?)

  • 76

  • 00:04:53,478 --> 00:04:58,133

  • Um, you can see pushing a bomb off the street.

  • 77

  • 00:04:58,133 --> 00:05:02,726

  • 78

  • 00:05:02,726 --> 00:05:05,776

  • Now, contrast that video,

  • 79

  • 00:05:05,776 --> 00:05:07,180

  • with this video,

  • 80

  • 00:05:07,180 --> 00:05:10,310

  • of a robot doing the same sort of thing.

  • 81

  • 00:05:10,310 --> 00:05:13,017

  • (again the volume there)

  • 82

  • 00:05:13,017 --> 00:05:17,287

  • So you can see by that orange can is the robot,

  • 83

  • 00:05:17,287 --> 00:05:35,006

  • 84

  • 00:05:35,006 --> 00:05:38,009

  • So, in the first video you heard screams

  • 85

  • 00:05:38,009 --> 00:05:41,545

  • the driver of that vehicle was not killed

  • 86

  • 00:05:41,545 --> 00:05:45,084

  • um survived. But here we have laughter and guys think

  • 87

  • 00:05:45,084 --> 00:05:48,786

  • 'Dude, Dude! I caught that on video!'

  • 88

  • 00:05:48,786 --> 00:05:53,894

  • So the robot was in fact destroyed but other than that

  • 89

  • 00:05:53,894 --> 00:05:57,127

  • we had resolved the situation.

  • 90

  • 00:05:57,127 --> 00:06:00,859

  • So again, robots for going into very scary and

  • 91

  • 00:06:00,859 --> 00:06:05,502

  • dangerous situations enable to change the equation

  • 92

  • 00:06:05,502 --> 00:06:10,943

  • and protect the lives of people trying to protect us.

  • 93

  • 00:06:10,943 --> 00:06:15,443

  • So this technology, this idea

  • 94

  • 00:06:15,443 --> 00:06:20,716

  • that was represented by those robots that you just saw

  • 95

  • 00:06:20,716 --> 00:06:25,423

  • is the beginning of a very exciting idea.

  • 96
