The 2016 launch
On February 8, 2016 (New Year’s Eve, Year of the Fire Monkey), Asian Robotics Review was launched as an experiment to address robotics and automation news, analysis and research from and about the world’s most important yet most underserved robotics market.
The experiment took hold and flourished. February 2017 (Year of the Fire Rooster) marks the publication’s one-year anniversary. Year of the Fire Rooster is characterized by "trustworthiness, with a strong sense of timekeeping and responsibility" at work. Great traits to emulate, and we shall.
