The Salt Lake Local Section held "Ironman and Real World Robotics" at a local pub in the fall of 2009. The event had 150 attendees. The event was cosponsored with SLSciencePub and was promoted on slsciencepub.org, flyers on University of Utah campus, and via emails on both the University of Utah chemistry department and Salt Lake Local ACS Section email lists. The discussion was lead by Dr Stephen Jacobsen, President of Sarcos-Raytheon (a local robotic technology firm) and also a professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Utah, was on the robotics research and artificial intelligence and the impact on society.
Thank you to the Salt Lake Local Section for providing the summary of the event.
