SoftBank Robotics designs and manufactures interactive and friendly humanoid robots. They believe in a future where human-shaped robots will help humans in their day-to-day lives.They aim to make robots accessible to all so that they become daily companions. In less than 10 years, they have become a leader on the humanoid robotics market and now offer robots that assist professionals in sectors such as education, research, healthcare, retail and tourism. They designed their first robot – NAO – in 2006. An iconic part of this pioneering adventure, nearly 13 000 NAO robots are currently used throughout the world, and have met great success especially in research and education. In 2009, they launched the ROMEO Project in collaboration with research laboratories and institutions, with the aim of furthering research on assisting people with reduced autonomy. SoftBank – one of the biggest and most innovative companies in Japan – selected Aldebaran to design and create the first emotional robot: Pepper. Pepper was launched in 2014 and Aldebaran was renamed SoftBank Robotics in 2016, as now part of SoftBank Group. SoftBank Robotics (SoftBank Group) now represents more than 500 employees, located in France, Japan, the United States and China.

The AI and Robotics Lab was founded by Dr Fady Alnajjar in 2017 at the College of Information Technology in UAEU. This lab is focused on research with the latest trends in robotic and AI applications in the medical and educational fields. The members study and understand Human behaviors, whether it concerns motor learning and memory, or brain’s neural dynamics. Understanding these mechanisms can assist us in developing various technologies that can enhance the quality of our life (QOL). The members of the lab are dedicated researchers who work on the latest and trending topics with the hope of making a mark in the future of health and education thru robotics.
