A guest blog post written by Fitch Even partner Steven G. Parmelee was published on June 19, 2015, in the Entrepreneur section of the Virgin Group Ltd. website as part of their special series focusing on the future of robotics and artificial intelligence (AI). In the article, “What Does the History of Robot Patents Reveal About Our Love of Machines?,” Steve provides commentary on a brief history of patents issued by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office that include the word “robot” in the title.
Virgin is publishing this series as part of its partnership with the annual Think Big Festival, the leading robotics, artificial intelligence, and innovation think tank and conference, which will take place August 20–22, 2015, in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Fitch Even will be a sponsor of this event, which brings together entrepreneurs, thought leaders, and technology powerhouses to discuss recent and future developments in robotics and related technologies.
