The celebration event of “Adecco IT Academy 10 – Robotics” started with 500 registrars and nearly 300 participants in one of Budapest’s most popular ruin pubs called Anker’t on May 11th. The popularity of the topic was well demonstrated by the fact that the visitors filled 3 halls in the pub where 3 professional presentations, a robot exhibition and a short robotic dance show during the opening ceremony could be seen.
László Spiller, Adecco’s executive consultant, summed up the story of Adecco IT Academy in his greeting and recalled the most exciting topics and images of the previous meetups. In the second part of his lecture he talked about how robots are transforming the world of work. The executive consultant concluded on the basis of Adecco’s various surveys and research that robotics are not the end of human work, and even technology actually creates more jobs. Furthermore, the world of work will be more flexible by routing routine jobs to robots, so we can work on more valuable projects.
Árpád Takács, represented the “University of Óbuda, Antal Bejczy iRobotetics Center” and Almotive Kft. at the Adecco IT Academy. In his professional lecture, he gave a comprehensive picture of the development of robotics, the importance of automation, the use of robots, artificial intelligence, and self-driving cars. At the end of his presentation the expert confirmed Adecco’s research results and said that “robots are our friends whom we create to help us and if we accept it, then the world of robotics and work will be in the right direction.”
Áron Tanos, from the “Hungarian Association of Robot Builders” spoke about the challenges and beauties of homemade robots. In his practice oriented lecture he talked about the association’s projects, international competitions, events and trainings. In addition, he summarized the knowledge, workshop, and equipment needed for building robots at home. The robot exhibition was particularly popular in the circles of children, which showed the robots, made by members of the association, during operation in a separate hall. For example, the robot arm, the xylophone robot, or the hydrogen powered small car could be tested.
For the organizer’s greatest pleasure both the presentations and the robot exhibition were full house from the beginning till the end of the event. Adecco IT Academy 10 ended with a prize draw where lucky guests got richer with valuable robot gifts. After the event, the participants continued their personal professional networking on the site.
