Jeff Wong and Robust.AIís Rodney Brooks on life-changing mobile robots

In this EY video, Jeff Wong, EY Global Chief Innovation Officer, and Rodney Brooks, Co-founder and CTO of Robust.AI, discuss Rodney’s vision for mobile robots’ place in our world.

If robotics industry pioneer Rodney Brooks has anything to say about it, user-friendly mobile robots that look like shopping carts with handles will be in grocery stores, warehouses, hospitals, homes – make that virtually anywhere – soon. Very soon.

Jeff Wong and Rodney Brooks chat about Rodney’s latest venture, Robust.AI, and his goal to make mobile robots ubiquitous “power tools” — not only across the workplace, but in ways that can “meet people where they are,” increasing mobility, independence and safety in our everyday lives.
