Robotic Edutainer | Robotic Speaker | Robotics Consultant
Dr. Joanne Pransky’s path to becoming a robotics consultant involved a great deal of observation and insight into the human condition, surprisingly enough. In the ‘80s, after selling computers to small businesses, she noted the resistance many intelligent people had to technology, even when it made their lives easier. It didn’t take a long leap for her to make the move toward acting as a Robotics Industry Ambassador– a conduit between humans and robots, paving what she knew was the inexorable road toward a world that included robots in our daily life. This also meant helping robotic developers navigate these complex issues, as well as facilitating adoption by a (sometimes) wary public.
With a background in sales and marketing in addition to her expertise in robotics and human development, she’s uniquely positioned to act as a robotics consultant and help companies introduce their newest technology to the public in an accessible and non-threatening way.
Her humor and ability to create relatability between robots and humans is a powerful tool in bringing the general public around to the idea of collaborating with their new electronic counterparts. Much in the way wildlife expert Steve Irwin demystified some of the most dangerous and feared animals on the planet through his infectious enthusiasm, Dr. Joanne works with organizations to pave the way for a warm reception to all sorts of robots, even among Luddites.
She’s worked with top robotic and entertainment organizations such as BattleBots, DreamWorks, KUKA Robotics, Motoman, Robotics Industries Association, ST Robotics, Staubli Robotics, Summit Entertainment, Warner Bros and more. Contact her as a robotics consultant to have your robots receive the attention they need and deserve!
As a robot expert, Joanne knows how to bring these characteristics out and by showing the public these metallic (on the inside), customized (on the outside) robot companions, she inculcates an understanding of the robot’s uses, while spurring people’s imaginations of possible future developments.
A qualified robotics speaker does many things – informs people who are less familiar with robotics, relays information about the benefits, and entertains. This can be a tall order, and that’s where (short – in height only) robot specialist Dr. Joanne Pransky comes in. Named by Isaac Asimov himself as “the real Susan Calvin” in the late ‘80s, Joanne is the World’s First Robotic Psychiatrist®, and a professional robotic expert and speaker.
She’s appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, CNN, Comedy Central Sports Presents BattleBots, the SyFy Channel (back when it was still the “Sci-Fi Channel”), and more.
