President Joseph E. Aoun hosts a conversation with iRobot CEO Colin Angle
“Adventures in Entrepreneurship”
Colin Angle and his team transformed the robot from factory drone to a member of the family—domestic and military—with the award-winning Roomba floor-vacuuming robot and the PackBot search and bomb-disposal robot. Join a discussion with President Aoun and iRobot’s visionary CEO and cofounder on the challenges of entrepreneurship, the possibilities for the next generation of robots, and whether there could someday be a rise of the machines.
