Season 1 Episode 8
On episode eight, Pieter Abbeel is joined by
Covariant CEO and co-founder Peter Chen. Peter is one of Pieter's closest collaborators for the past five years. They first crossed paths when Peter studied for his PhD in Pieter's lab in Berkeley before they began working together at OpenAI. This led them to co-found Covariant in 2017 with Peter as the CEO and Pieter as the Chief Scientist.
Covariant is building an universal AI to help robots see, learn and interact with the world around them. The discussion ranges from the future of AI-powered robotics to looking at what happens when you teach industrial robots to "think" and "learn" from their environment.
