Raising the Bar began in 2014 with an ambition to show the citizens of New York City that you can learn something new in unconventional places, like your local bar. We invited 50 leading professors and researchers from Columbia University and New York University to host talks in the city’s best bars and share their knowledge with the public.

The Sydney Raising the Bar Light Rail Edition is being held on 28 April 2021, where 20 innovators will speak at 10 bars, all on 1 night.

Join Contactile CEO, Heba Khamis, as she discusses “What does a robotic future really look like?”

At the mention of the word ‘robot’, most people imagine a futuristic human-like robot that can see and hear, can walk and talk, and can manipulate things with its ‘hands’ – like Sonny from the movie iRobot, or maybe even the Terminator. There aren’t many (if any) robots like this just yet, but actually, robots are already all around us – they are vacuuming our homes, manufacturing our cars and assembling our electronics – and robotic technologies are improving every day. To predict what our robotic future might look like, we will look at how technology has changed the world in the past, what technology and robotics are doing for us in the present, innovations in robotics today and how we will adapt to these future robotic technologies.
