(Berlin, September 6, 2916) ROBOTERRA CEO Yao Zhang gave a keynote speech at 2016 IFA+ Summit on designing a place for people and machines and training ourselves to race with the robots, not against them.
In the 10-minute speech, Yao Zhang talked about creativity and design for creativity. "Just like what we are doing at ROBOTERRA," Yao shared the Origin Kit story with the audience, "We purposely didn't include rubber wheels in the first Origin Kit, to make our students to generate new ideas on how to 'reinvent the wheel'."
