Picking Placing using AI Powered Robots with Ambi Robotics' Jeff Mahler The Robot Industry Podcast

    • Technology

Welcome to episode #55 of The Robot Industry Podcast. My guest for this episode is Jeff Mahler, from Ambi Robotics. Dr. Mahler is the CTO and co-founder of Ambi Robotics. He received his PhD in AI and robotics from the University of California, Berkeley for his work with Prof. Ken Goldberg on the Dexterity Network (Dex-Net), a state-of-the-art method for rapidly teaching robots to pick up items they've never been trained on before. His robot vision research has appeared in The New York Times, MIT Tech Review, and Forbes, and has been nominated for numerous awards at international research conferences including Best Manipulation Paper and Best Human-Robot Interaction Paper. Jeff also holds a BS in Electrical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin. While there, he was the co-founder and lead computer vision engineer at Lynx Labs, a 3D scanning startup that was acquired by Occipital in 2015.



Here are some of the questions that we talk about in this edition of The Robot Industry Podcast:



What do you do at Ambi robotics?



How did you get started?



Who is your ideal customer?



What is their big problem?



Are you robot agnostic?



What is adaptable AI?



How do you use simulation software? Which one?



How important is data for your customers?



What other problems do you solve than just picking and placing?



Robots as a service, data, kitting, packing and pick and place.



Partners and contract manufacturing with DWFRITZ company
