Manufacturing has long had robots carrying out certain tasks — but those robots require a high amount of inputs on the front end. Then, once those inputs are created, the robots are “stuck” in that position. Throw off the temperature of the manufacturing floor, the orientation of an object, or any other small detail, and that robot has very little ability to respond.
But now, with advanced robotics, at least one company is trying to create more aware robots that can respond to their environment.
On this episode, Costas Boulis joined us to share how Bright Machines is reinventing manufacturing with advanced robotics
Costas is the Chief Scientist at Bright Machines, and was previously an Applied Scientist at Amazon and a Data Scientist for Microsoft, among other advanced science positions. He has a PhD in Electrical Engineering, and received scholar positions at both John Hopkins and Stanford.
