The Fourth Industrial Revolution Is Here
Join us by invitation for a day of demonstrations and conversations about smart robotics and industrial automation.

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.
