Titan the Robot was asked to entertain the shoppers at the City Centre Mirdif, Dubai by the owners Majid Al Futtaim in early September. Shoppers flocked to the shopping mall once they had heard that the celebrity that is Titan was appearing in the mall for several days. Posts on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook went viral as the word got out that Titan the Robot was in town. Titan’s sidekick, Dave judged a dancing competition and handed out prizes and Titan badges to some very excited kids. Titan shows once again that he is the number 1 entertainer in the Middle East.
Titan the Robot certainly stole the show as the special guest of Managed Technology Services specialists GCI at Microsoft’s recent Future Decoded event.
Held at the ExCel in London on 31st October and 1st November, Future Decoded is an annual event organised by Microsoft, where they and their partners showcase new and emerging tech products and services to the industry. As Headline Sponsor, GCI’s impressive stand, themed “Digital Transformers” already made them stand out from the crowd, but there was one element that was a real crowd pleaser. Enter Titan!
Titan entertained delegates at several points throughout both days, engaged with the attendees…and was even available for selfies! However, having Titan on the stand was no mere crowd-pulling stunt; GCI have a vested interest in all things AI, a topic that was a prominent talking point during this event. GCI’s own Head of Propositions, Karl Roberts, is an industry trailblazer and has pioneered ideas around intelligent meta-bot interactive assistants using Amazon Echo and Skype as an intelligent personal tax assistant. He has also designed several banking systems, including Europe’s first passive voice biometrics to combat fraud. Karl was a natural choice for a Session speaker, addressing a packed room on the subject of “The age of AI conversational commerce for next-generation Customer Service”.
Back on the stand, Titan danced and joked with the ever-increasing crowds, and was one of the biggest talking points of the whole event. Watch this space to see where he pops up next!
The British F1 Grand Prix lived up to all expectations and was an incredible event in every aspect. Titan had an amazing time and even made it down onto the grid. Titan spent race day hanging around with the celebs, Titan soaked Goldie before having a ‘dance off’ with former Spice Girl, Geri Horner (Halliwell). All in all and absolutely epic weekend.
It was all glitz and glamour when Titan was asked to perform at the F1 Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona. Titan was allowed to wander anywhere in the Catalunya circuit and performed in the fan zone, in the paddock club with all the race teams and he even went to welcome all the drivers as they arrived.
The Pflastersektakel is an international street performance festival held annually in Linz, Austria. Over 100 artist groups of artists from more than 30 countries descend on the beautiful city of Linz for this weekend of spectacular street theatre. This was Titan’s first visit to this amazing festival but it certainly won’t be his last.
