What is R3plica?

R3plica wants to bring the stories from the minds shaping the future of robotics and artificial intelligence (Ai), taking the development for the emerging technologies to the next level.

The name ‘R3plica’ comes from the need to make different and distinctive the title of the ‘Replica’ project.

The purpose of the number 3, in addition, represents the reverse of the letter ‘E’; it also has the meaning of the Three Laws of Robotics set by the science fiction author Isaac Asimov.

Event Details

In this episode, the guest speaker is the Founder and CEO of Reflect Robotics, Sikiru (Olamilekan) Salau, and the Robotics developer Nelson Elijah.

The talk is about the future of Robotics in Africa.

We’ll also be discussing a few other topics in general that you can see in the list below, but will be an open discussion about Robotics.

  • Story and mission of Reflect Robotics.
  • The experience of Nelson Elijah as Robotics Developer in Africa.
  • The Future of Africa with help of Robotics.
  • Industrial Robotics and Robotics education in Africa.
  • Africa Robotics projects.

Reflect Robotics builds advanced mobile manipulation service and industrial robots as well as robots for education, research, and product prototyping. Africa is highly underrepresented in advanced robotics and robot technologies.

We are addressing this challenge by training and developing people in Africa to become advanced robotics experts that will be at the forefront of transforming the world with robot technologies. We use and partner with world-leading hardware and software technology platforms to develop cutting-edge robot solutions.
