In Ep.16 of The Robot Brains Podcast, Pieter Abbeel sits down with AMP Robotics CEO and founder, Matanya Horowitz.
Matanya is the founder and CEO of AMP Robotics, an industrial AI robotics company using automation to modernize recycling. An estimated $200bn worth of recyclable materials go un-recycled by municipal waste centres around the world. AMP’s incredible "waste sorting robots" recover this recyclable material from waste at superhuman speeds and with extremely high accuracy.
Matanya's AI-powered robots use advanced vision systems to recover valuable resources from junk, in the process, improving the ecological impact of waste on our environment. In his chat with Pieter, Matanya explains how he started AMP Robotics, why he decided to get into the trash business, and what he imagines the future of a "waste free world" will look like?
