An Operational Platform of Cloud Robotics

Video Description

Cloud Robotics is a kind of robot whose “brains” are on cloud, with a global high-speed backbone network as the “nerve”. In the near future, all the intelligent robots will be Cloud Robotics. At this session, we will introduce the architecture of Cloud Robotics, and how to build an operational platform for millions of robots with human assistant robot intelligence, mobile intranet cloud services, and robot control units.


ICRA 2017

The 2017 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) was held from May 29 to June 3, 2017 at Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. ICRA is IEEE Robotics and Automation Society's flagship conference and is a premier international forum for robotics researchers to present their work. The conference theme, “Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Real-world Solutions”, underscores the need for innovative R&D talent, dynamic and goal-driven entrepreneurs and practitioners using robotics and automation technology to solve challenging real-world problems such as shortage of labour, an ageing society, and creating sustainable environments.



Bill Huang is Founder and CEO of CloudMinds Inc. Before Cloudminds, he was GM of China Mobile Research Institute, SVP and CTO of UTStarcom, and previously worked at AT&T Bell Labs. Bill has creatively proposed the soft-switch concept of "the Network is the Switch", developed the first mobile soft-switch system in the world, and developed the first carrier-class streaming media exchange and IPTV system. He proposed the strategic concept of constructing the three major infrastructures (network, applications and terminals) of the next-generation mobile internet for the carriers, and promoted TD-LTE to be an internationally mainstream B3G standard, thus raising the technological influence of China in the communications industry.

In 2016, Bill was honoured IEEE CQR award. Besides, He is one of the first group of “Talent 1000” plan of China, a professor of University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, and a board member of GPS International Advisory Board of UC San Diego.

Bill received his master degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the University of Illinois in 1984. He graduated from the Huazhong University of Science and Technology in 1982 with a bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering.
