Sharing Kambria’s Vision
Recently, Kambria’s CEO, Thuc Vu, and Head of Special Projects, Dhana Pawar, were invited by Lehigh University to a dinner sponsored by Enjin, The Stanford Faculty Club and Abobe. There they met with 15 Japanese CEOs interested in AI & Data Science who learned about Kambria’s vision and approach to robotics. Thuc also shared information about our new programs such as the Global Innovation Fund, our Open Innovation Hubs, and the way we collaborate with industry and academia. Of course, we brought our Ohmni telepresence robot for attendees to experience. Collective gasps of excitement filled the room! To read more about the event and to see pictures, click here.
