Emeritus Prof. of Robotics @ MIT - Rethink Robotics Chairman
Hi everyone! Glad to be on Parlio! I have been an academic researcher and administrator in robotics and Artificial Intelligence, an author, a journal editor, and a robotics entrepreneur. In the latter role, I have founded companies that have delivered more home robots, more military ground robots, and more humanoid robots (for manufacturing and logistics) than any other company.
I am a strong believer in the long term promise of robotics and Artificial Intelligence, but believe that the current fears being expressed in the press, and by opinion leaders, wildly overestimate the short term possibilities for these technologies.
I welcome questions on these topics!
