Covariant raises Series B funding for ‘AI robotics’ for unassisted autonomous manipulation

On May 7, 2020
@pabbeel shared
RT @nikkigarcia120: Enjoyed working w/ @GeneD5 on this @therobotreport story! Good overview of how Covariant thinks about autonomy for its AI-powered robots, why it's a key success metric, and how we measure it w/ something we call "mean uninterrupted operating time" https://t.co/WEzozWBE1I
Open

Covariant, which has raised $40 million in Series B funding, is building AI to enable picking robots to work longer without intervention.
