Cascadia Connect Robotics, Automation and AI Conference 2022


With over 330 registered attendees, more than 25 speakers and panelists, and hundreds of individual meetings and connections made, the 2022 Cascadia Connect Robotics, Automation and AI (“RAAI”) conference in Pittsburgh was over the top!

The Fairmont Pittsburgh was the epicenter of the event which took place from May 2-4, 2022.  We were fortunate to have hosted this gathering in collaboration with Carnegie Mellon University, Innovation Works, and the Pittsburgh Robotics Network – all of whom have been instrumental in the region’s emergence as a hotbed of innovation to date and will continue to be key resources for the greater RAAI community.

We  named our this conference  “Connect” for a reason: to create connections among all of us in the RAAI ecosystem that would start at the Conference and endure after. Connections are what will help our ecosystem grow and evolve, and it was our goal to create an environment that would spur active dialogue and high-value networking for everyone – a goal we believe was achieved!

As can be expected from an event of this caliber, there are many takeaways. Please find below a brief conference recap, conference materials, images from our welcome reception and conference activities, and coverage of the conference by leading RAAI media outlets. Enjoy and see you next year!
