         Two Hot Panels: The State of Robotics, Predictions for 2007
      New York is robot city! Will there be a robot (or many robots) in
    every home? Bill Gates thinks the robotics industry is today where the
      PC industry was 30 years ago - about to take off into exponential
      growth. We've discovered an amazing amount of interesting robotics
                       work going on right here in NYC.
     In addition, we will have display tables with cool robot stuff from
       robotics companies and organizations. And the problem will also
     include the annual "NYSIA WiseGuys and Wise Gals Predictions Panel".
       Two hot panels, eight smart panelists, ten cool robots, 50 great
              predictions... what better way to start the year?
