Automotive News Journalist Pete Bigelow talks AI and the near future of robotics with TRI’s Max Bajracharya, senior vice president of Robotics.

“The institute expects that it will help its robots learn hundreds of skills by the end of the year,” Bigelow wrote. “It's a landmark step toward making robots more versatile in a wider range of environments.”

"If we've done our job right, these can apply to many different applications," Bajracharya was quoted saying.
