    WHAT IS ROBOTICS FOR GOOD INNOVATION FACTORY? 

    Robotics for Good as part of the AI for Good Innovation Factory is a series of pitching sessions open to any innovative start-ups developing intelligent autonomous systems to accelerate progress toward the Sustainable Development Goals. Intelligent autonomous systems are developed by integrating AI with robotics. This powerful combination enhances the capabilities of robots by enabling them to analyze, learn and self-improve without having to be programmed in a classical way. 

    AI for Good Innovation Factory is an UN-led pitching platform to help start-ups grow and scale their innovative AI-powered and SDG-driven solutions, by connecting them to potential business partners, investors, governments, big IT companies and more. 

    For those who are seeking ground-breaking solutions from start-ups, it is an excellent platform to explore opportunities to meet promising ventures and collaborators. 

    Learn more about the Robotics for Good Innovation Factory pitching competition throughout 2022-23, leading up to the Grand Finale in June 2023.
