David Hanson

is the founder and CEO of Hanson Robotics – a company that aims to create robots as socially adept as any human being. A former Walt Disney Imagineer, this entrepreneur and roboticist has been labelled a “genius” by both PC Magazine and WIRED, and has earned awards from NASA, NSF and Cooper Hewitt Design. If Hanson succeeds, he will create a socially intelligent robot that may even one day have a place in the human family.
