Humanoid robots won’t be roaming our streets anytime soon, but it won’t be long before service robots will deliver meals, medication and other essentials to the most vulnerable. As many governments look to transform urban communities into hyper-connected smart cities, they will partner with innovators to automate the delivery of essential human services across medical, caregiving, transportation, security, sanitation and emergency services. This presents an enormous opportunity for global service robot developers–not to mention new coverage opportunities for the world’s insurers.

Join SOMPO Digital Lab and its partners as they offer a glimpse into how Japan is collaborating with global innovators to populate their smart cities with the world’s smartest robots, and how Sompo, a 32 billion-dollar Tokyo-based insurer, looks to protect them.
