Japan Robot Week is the occasionally quirkier, certainly more intimate, biennial alternate to iREX, its gigantic big brother. The focus is on Japanese firms’ service, assistive, and social robotics offerings; to the point: it’s a big-ass building filled with badass robots.
China edition…kinda! This week China wants to get its hands on Japanese test-taking A.I. and is asking very politely; meanwhile, the U.S. is going to get an LA-to-Vegas bullet train from China – which technically means the Americans will finally get to ride some Japanese trains. We are not shitting you!
