Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have seen a surge in adoption and advances for IT applications, especially for database management, CI/CD support and other functionalities. Robotics, meanwhile, is largely relegated to factory-floor automation. In this The New Stack Makers podcast, Pieter Abbeel, co-founder, president, chief scientist at covariant.ai, a supplier of “universal AI” for robotics, discusses why and how the potential of robotics can evolve beyond just serving as pre-programmed devices thanks to advances in IT. Abbeel also draws on his background to offer his perspective, as a professor at the University of California, Berkeley and a podcast host at The Robot Brains Podcast.
Alex Williams, founder and publisher of The New Stack, hosted this podcast.
