Cosmo The Robot

Stuff that should be discussed in your classes even if you are not a computer science major. Great video on discussion points that need to be explored and addressed with greater industrial automation.

Can you imagine larger version of Cosmo that can lift a 2.5 ton car?

I’ve just become a fan of Boris Sofman, CEO and co-founder of the San Francisco based company Anki which built Cosmo. Got his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. at a totally awesome school Carnegie Mellon University.

I’ve been a fan of Dr. Heather Knight ever since she did a TED Talk about her robot, Data, back in 2010.

I am a technologist with a strong background in software engineering. I have many interests. My current distractions are 70s-80s-90s music [it's a very eclectic collection], ontology, information architecture, mobile device technology, medical bioinformatics, artificial intelligence, and nanorobotics.
