Pittsburgh tech scene participates in SXSW

SXSW, a series of conferences, festivals, concerts, pitch competitions and exhibitions, kicked off in Austin Friday, and Pittsburgh’s tech scene is making its mark on the event, which runs until March 17.

Pittsburgh-based AI startup RoadBotics will pitch its road inspection technology alongside four other startups in the annual pitch competition’s newly added artificial intelligence category on Sunday, March 10.

Benjamin Utter, RoadBotics’ business development manager, will represent the company in Austin, and he described the event as “a big activation festival.”

Utter said it’s an opportunity for Pittsburghers to gain exposure on a global stage.
