Innovation robotic summit  held in Lyon, France March 23-25, 2011

The innorobo summit featured the exhibit of more than 100 robots, 30 of which were on display for the first time ever in Europe. It  included conferences on a wide range of topics such as the social implications of robotics and the shape of robots to come.

According to  the experts, the shape of future robots will have to do with how their creators desire them to move. If we want robots to achieve animal-like motions (hopping, swimming and having to ¨learn ¨to perform actions such as standing), will we want them to look like animals too?  Another important question raised in one of the conferences was: should robots look like humans and how will humans interact them?
