Welcome to a new era of robotics.

Robots of the past were defined by their tasks. They went through pre-planned motions and they weren’t able to adapt to changes in their environment.

Today’s next-gen robots, however, are hyper-intelligent, able to differentiate between people and objects, and adjust to changes in real time.

Nan Li, Managing Director at Obvious Ventures, has spent a lot of his career watching the evolution of robotics, and in this episode, he explains what this new era of robots means for the manufacturing industry.

Join us as we discuss:

  • The differences between the robots of yesterday and the robots of today
  • What autonomous vehicles have to do with advances in robotics
  • How robot systems are becoming more financially accessible
