Modern Robotics Platform with Eliot Horowitz


Programming robotics software has traditionally been a specialized field. The software industry has seen rapid progress, the operating system that provides the foundation for our software applications is taken care of by companies like Google, Microsoft, and other players like Canonical, Amazon, etc. The robotics industry still needs that OS layer that handles the complexities so that engineers can build robots that serve their business needs. VIAM aspires to be the Operating System for robotics that makes it easy to turn great ideas into production robots.

Eliot Horowitz is the Founder and CEO of VIAM and he joins us today. Eliot was previously the CTO at MongoDB, a database company. We discuss with him the different challenges one faces when trying to build a robot and how VIAM is trying to solve that.
