Strategically Unprecedented Moves

George Devol, the father of modern robotics, forecast the fourth industrial revolution over half a century ago. Yet only recently have advances in computers, materials, and data science made his vision possible on the world’s stage.

The future of intelligence and automation is a dance between humans and machines, one never before thought possible. The dance is artful, agile, collaborative, and exceedingly well-designed. It is a calibrated choreography of strategically unprecedented moves.

Devol’s Dance

Devol’s Dance is a celebration of industrial robotics, AI, and automation.

These are the technologies driving the future of work. These are the technologies redefining humanity’s capacity to create on scales both large and small.

The Automation Capital of the World

The Midwest is the automation capital of the world. The tools we build today will shape the economies of tomorrow.

Today over 60 percent of the world’s deployed robots are active in the Midwest, and there are now more entrepreneurs building billion-dollar companies here than in the past 50 years combined.

We couldn’t imagine a better place to collaboratively explore the future of intelligence, automation and manufacturing. This is where it all started in the first place.

The future is being built now in the Midwest.
Devol’s Dance
Leading minds. Unforgettable demos.

This October, corporate leaders, tech entrepreneurs, and venture partners will meet in Columbus, Ohio for Devol’s Dance. The Dance will celebrate how industrial robotics, AI, and automation will forever change the way we work and live.

Devol’s Dance is 300 handpicked innovators & executives gathering to wrestle the most pressing questions impacting automation and industrial technology. How is automation redefining global supply chains and how can you be ahead of the curve? How do you create the factory of tomorrow, today? What elements of robotics will drive real results in your business now and what is still science fiction?

Devol’s Dance Is:
  • …real talk with the world’s top experts on AI, automation, and industrial robotics.
  • …mind-blowing demos and product drops.
Devol’s Dance Is Not:
  • …a day of endless panels filled with the same sound bites you’ve already heard, nor a day spent rehashing the same tired debates.
This is a summit unlike anything you’ve seen before.
You’re going to walk away with amazing connections and an unforgettable experience.
