About Asian Robotics Review

Asian Robotics Review is an online publication offering news, analysis, research and opinion on the global technology and business issues of robotics, robotics-driven automation, and artificial intelligence (AI) as it applies to and affects Asia (East Asia, Southeast Asia, Asia/Pacific (Australia & New Zealand), and India). Literally from Hokkaido to Chennai; and most prominently the epicenter of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, East Asia.

Robotics, automation and AI are a disruptive blend of technologies in the process of converging and, as such, entering into every sphere of work for everyone on the planet.

That convergence and its effects have caused the East to look keenly toward the West  while the West looks keenly toward the East. When it comes to robotics, automation and artificial intelligence (AI), it truly is East meets West, and West meets East, moment to moment. 

As our tagline says: “Specializing in Asia by Covering the Globe” that’s exactly what we do! From our home office in Boston to our reporting centers in Bangkok and Beijing.
