Interview with Helen Greiner of iRobot

Posted 3 Aug 2004 at 23:20 UTC by steve Share This

Phillip Torrone sent us a link to his recent interview with Helen Greiner, the chairman and cofounder of iRobot Corporation. The article includes photos of the new Roomba Discovery and the Linux-based PackBot. There's also a cool photo of the debris remaining from PackBot #129, which was killed in action in Iraq earlier this year while on a bomb disposal mission. Helen's prediction is that we are 100 years from seeing general purpose humanoid robots. Less intelligent, task-specific robots, on the other hand, are here today and will continue to improve rapidly.
