My company, Diligent Robotics, is focused first on thoughtfully introducing robot assistants into the healthcare industry as it’s one of society’s most comprehensive challenges. “Moxi” is our hospital robot assistant that we designed to help nurses with their non-patient facing tasks so nurses have more time for the activities that utilize the top of their license like patient care. In addition to Diligent, I hold a position as a Robotics Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at UT Austin where I direct the Socially Intelligent Machines Lab and previously held the same role at Georgia Tech.
My ultimate vision is to help create a world where robots positively assist humans as teammates so humans have more time for the stuff in their lives that they want to do and are best at. Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
