If you’ve read our previous articles, you know that Kambria is a platform that enables and incentivizes collaboration to stimulate open innovations. Although the platform will be focusing on improving the robotics and AI industry at the outset, Kambria will also be positively impacting projects in other verticals. In this series, we will be discussing how Kambria will facilitate a wide range of projects across a multitude of key verticals, including:
· Robotics & AI
· Social Impact
Robotics & AI
Siloed development, wasted labor, and high start-up cost have been limiting the pace of robotics innovation. With Kambria, our mission is to accelerate this process — enabling faster, cheaper, and easier robotics development and adoption by everyone. We engage a vast community of developers on our collaborative platform, and provide them with open codebase and robotics-DNA. We form an alliance to provide decentralized ultra-lean manufacturing capabilities. We partner with institutions and companies who share our passion for robotics technology to deliver affordable and capable robots to end users.
Giving the robotics and AI industry a push forward will also impact a variety of industries, and lead to the creation of more groundbreaking robots to potentially improve quality of life for humans.
With over 617 million elders ages 65 and up, and over 10,000 more everyday, almost everyone in the sandwich generation will face the problem of caring for their parents and grandparents. When it comes to aging, choosing to stay in a familiar environment like one’s home is a very popular option among seniors and their family.
Thanks to Kambria’s collaborative efforts, the development of products and services to remotely check-in and physically care for seniors becomes possible. Kambria will allow healthcare technology enthusiasts to quickly build advanced medical features on available products, without the need to start from scratch.
Quicker advancements in telemedicine can increase life expectancy globally and create the opportunity for superior quality of care. If your family members require immediate medical attention while you are unavailable, an intelligent robot could potentially save their life. This is Kambria’s vision for healthcare technology.
With a shortage of teachers worldwide, the epidemic of under-educated people has emerged. Teachers today have to adapt and customize their teaching efforts to their vast variety of students, and it has proved to be an extremely cumbersome career. Additionally, while remarkable progress has been made, there are still 750 million illiterate adults, two-thirds of whom are women. What if it was possible to create an artificial intelligence that teaches people in the way they were meant to be taught. With the Kambria platform, such technologies will become more of a reality than ever before.
If an independent developer created a groundbreaking education algorithm that could identify the ideal way a student should be taught but had an inadequate amount of resources to complete their project, the developer may never be able to bring their algorithm to light. With the collaborative community of the Kambria platform, the developer would be empowered to connect with others to acquire the resources they need to complete their project. The way education works today could be largely changed by innovations made in artificial intelligence development. Smarter people will bring smarter innovations, and Kambria wants to speed up the process of education innovation.
The transportation industry has yet to see any meaningful advancements in technology for close to a century. Cars, trains, and airplanes still remain to be the essential instruments of transportation for most humans. With the collaborative environment on Kambria, it would become possible for new modes of transportation to be developed by the community. For instance, there are much overlap in autonomous technologies used in consumer robots and self-driving vehicles. Quicker, more flexible mass transport options may arose due to new innovations, rather than relying on simple improvements to existing systems.
Developers making groundbreaking strides in improving transportation would finally be able to have their voices heard by joining the Kambria community. Their brilliant ideas can be voted by the community and backed by institutions and companies, and fabricated by the manufacturing alliance into a reality.
One of Kambria’s most important focuses is on how we want to positively impact the world. If there is a developer in the world that has invented an extremely portable and affordable water filtration system, Kambria wants to offer them a platform that makes it possible to mass produce and adopt such technology. Whether advancements in technologies can positively impact climate change, or save a species from extinction, Kambria wants its community to create not only life-changing technologies, but world-changing ones.
Advancing Human Progress
Kambria has an experienced team of professionals from all these industries, so advancing these frontier technologies mean a lot to us. Technologies in the past were all created through collaboration and teamwork, and Kambria wants to bring that culture back. Together, we can stimulate impactful innovations that can bring value to billions of people across the world.
