The symposium is sponsored by Littler Mendelson P.C. and the Association for Advancing Automation (A3), and hosted by the University of Michigan.

As automation becomes increasingly important with the growing global economy and aging workforce, companies in all industries are beginning to assess using robotics and automation to gain a competitive advantage. The panel will cover topics aimed at companies that are new to robotics and automation, including:>

  • Key initial steps and common pitfalls
  • How to prepare your workforce
  • How to make safety a priority
  • How to find automation and robotics resources for a successful project

Michael Jacobs will share his expertise on the panel with industry luminaries Mike Cicco, president and CEO of FANUC America, Dave Gravel robotics technical expert at the Ford Motor Company, and moderator Jeff Burnstein, president of A3.

The symposium will also feature three additional sessions: AI and Ethics, Cobots at Work, and Preparing Your Workforce: Future Worker Roles, Education, and Skill Requirements. The panelists are thought leaders from diverse organizations such as the University of Michigan, Littler, A3, Silicon Valley Law Group, KUKA Robotics USA, Cuatrecasas, Universal Robots, Michigan Mobility Institute, Robert Bosch LLC, and FortiGuard Labs.
