Israel and South Korea have agreed at an industrial brainstorming conference in Seoul to research and develop technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Korea-Israel Industrial Collaboration Conference on Monday ― the third of its kind ― sought to learn how advanced Israel’s leading technology leaders are and how Korean companies can learn from them and set up a cooperative pipeline to develop the technologies.

Held at the InterContinental Hotel in Samseong-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, the conference was geared toward working together on developing robotics and self-driving vehicles, according to the Korean ministry of trade, industry and energy.

Grove Ventures CEO Dov Moran, an Israeli entrepreneur and inventor who developed the USB memory stick, delivered a keynote speech.

The Korea Association of Robot Industry and its Israeli counterpart signed a memorandum of understanding to pave the way for their common goal.
