Erik will discuss some of these key challenges that prevent other robotics companies from scaling up, and how Cobalt has solved them with a unique blend of AI, Machine Learning, and remote human-in-the-loop technology. Come for technical insights required to operate a fleet of robots at scale, and humorous war stories fighting Murphy's Law.
