Autonomously Delicious: RobOps and FoodTech

Premieres live: February 2, 2022

Duration: 45 minutes

Your robot waiter will be with you soon.

The processes of getting food from the farm or factory onto the table, either in your dining room or at a restaurant, are now being transformed through robotics and automation just like other industries such as retail and agriculture. While much food production has been automated for years, we are now seeing additional automation occur within factories (such as bulk ingredients being moved via autonomous mobile robots or forklifts, or picking robots helping to package finished goods). In the restaurant space, we are seeing automated systems that help prepare food or deliver finished orders to customers, both of which seek to address labor shortages caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The FoodTech sector aims to transform the food industry into something more modern, sustainable, and efficient. Robust technologies are being developed that will affect production, distribution, and of course consumption. Intrinsically linked to AgTech development, FoodTech incorporates engineering and science to research and build solutions to problems that range from feeding a growing global population, to managing food scarcity, food equity, food waste, climate change, unstable supply lines, and much more.

On a more individual scale, consumer FoodTech is making leaps and bounds as automated kitchens, autonomous food deliveries for external customers, and yes, even robot waiters emerge to safely take your order, deliver your meals. and return your plates once you’re done.

Join us as we explore the fascinating field of automation in FoodTech. We’ll discuss industrial and commercial applications of emerging technology as it revolutionized foodservice and beyond. Reserve your spot today as we discuss:

  • FoodTech defined - problems to be solved
  • Applications and technologies explored
  • Unique challenges facing automation in FoodTech
  • Collaboration between humans and robots
  • Opportunities for scaled Foodtech (Industrial and Commercial)
  • Integrating RobOps into autonomous FoodTech solutions

Guest speakers for this live webinar include Clayton Wood, CEO at Seattle-based Picnic. Wood has served in key leadership positions in organizations ranging from startups to Fortune 100 organizations, across a variety of technology industries, including renewable energy, robotics and software. Wood has successfully taken companies from scratch to global publicly traded businesses or to successful acquisition.

Our second speaker Gennadiy Goldenshteyn is Founder and Managing Director of Dinemic Ventures, a product development incubator for technology-driven innovation in foodservice and hospitality industries with particular focus on automation. He is also Principal at First Principles LLC, a consulting firm that helps clients break down seemingly complex strategy and operations problems down to their foundational basics (i.e., “first principles”) and create improvement programs. Gennadiy is passionate about the role of technology in improving human experience and relishes thinking ahead of the current landscape of solutions.
