Ambi Robotics’ Ken Goldberg and Jim Liefer talk about Ambi’s current US $6 million Seed spherical, and choosing robots skilled utilizing simulations. Additionally, Carbon Robotics CEO Paul Mikesell on weeding robots.
Welcome to Episode 40 of The Robotic Report Podcast, the place every week Robotic Report editor Steve Crowe and Cellular Robotic Information editor Mike Oitzman evaluation the newest robotics, automation and clever programs information and bulletins, and interview main roboticists, leaders of revolutionary robotics corporations, and different key members of the robotics neighborhood.

On this podcast, Steve Crowe and Mike Oitzman communicate with Ken Goldberg and Jim Liefer of Ambi Robotics. Previously often known as Ambidextrous Laboratories, Ambi Robotics just lately exited stealth mode by elevating $6.1 million in seed funding for its choosing robots and working system which can be based mostly on simulation-to-reality synthetic intelligence. They clarify how Dex-Internet, which was created by Goldberg’s group at UC Berkeley is powering Ambi’s robots. Additionally they share classes discovered over time, challenges of common greedy and far more.
Oitzman additionally spoke with Paul Mikesell, founder and CEO of Carbon Robotics, who takes us inside the event of the corporate’s third-generation weeding robotic. On the core of the machine is a high-power laser that “zaps” the weeds utilizing excessive depth thermal vitality to destroy a person plant, with out disturbing the soil. Consequently, farmers can turn into extra eco-friendly and use fewer herbicides.
Crowe and Mike Oitzman additionally break down WTWH Media’s acquisition of Cellular Robotic Information, the way it strengthens the rising robotics portfolio at WTWH Media, and the model’s position in educating customers about the advantages of cell robots.
