Welcome to Episode 91 of The Robot Report Podcast, which brings conversations with robotics innovators straight to you. Join us each week for discussions with leading roboticists, innovative robotics companies and other key members of the robotics community.
Michael Kohen, founder and CEO of Spark AI, joins this week’s show. Michael discusses situations in which AI and machine learning still come up short for robotics systems and how a human-in-the-loop system can help solve edge cases in real-time. He shares specific real-world examples, including details about Spark AI’s partnership with John Deere and its autonomous tractors.
The podcast also discusses the top stories of the week, including the US government imposing restrictions on AMD and NVIDIA selling certain AI chipsets to China. We break down what this could mean for robotics.
