At SoftBank, we’re making robotics personal.

We believe the future of work lies in robotics, with the potential to make our lives more productive and more fulfilling – but also more filled with joy, excitement, and wonder. It all starts, though, with the right technology – enhancing the way robots learn, interact, and connect with people.

Advancing humanity through robotics.

Right now, we have a one-way relationship with our technology – we tap on screens, we talk to speakers. Robotics offers the potential for something more – something interactive, responsive, multisensory, personal.

At SoftBank Robotics, our goal is to optimize Human-Robotic Interaction (HRI), developing the sort of robots that people can

really engage with – robots who are friendlier, more aware, even a little magical. Robots that learn. Robots that work better together – and work better with us.

Robots are designed to help – we’re here to make sure they help the right way, elevating how we work, how we learn, how we connect, and how we grow.

Our global leadership.

Supporting our core team in San Francisco, SoftBank Robotics’ leadership spans the globe from Tokyo to France, offering a combined 130 years of technical expertise.
