RoboCafé is back in physical form, in the EXPO of RoboHouse in Delft. With a drink, bite and gathering of all people interested in work, cognitive robotics and people-machine collaboration.

This edition features Simon Jagers, one of the founders of Samotics, an end-to-end asset health monitoring system that enables predictive maintenance and improves operational excellence. Samotics recently raised €14.5m in a funding round led by 83NORTH, a venture capital firm based in London and Tel Aviv. Simon is also on the board of the World Class Maintenance network, the board of Dutch maintenance association NVDO and last year joined the Forbes Technology Council. Before Samotics, he held senior positions at Dell, Oracle and EMC.

Previously on RoboCafé we saw Aimée Sakes, assistant professor at the faculty of BioMechanical Engineering at Delft University of Technology, captivate the audience with her talk about bio-inspired technology in healthcare. She showed a range of novel prototypes, such as a new type of grasper inspired by the egg-laying needle of parasitic wasps.
