'Godfather of AI' Geoffrey Hinton Joins Advisory Board of Startup Vayu Robotics
To Help Develop Next Wave of Trustworthy, Helpful Robotics
Legendary AI researcher Geoffrey Hinton is lending his expertise to help guide Vayu Robotics on its mission to develop safe and sustainable robotics solutions through advanced artificial intelligence. As one of the founding fathers of neural networks and deep learning, Hinton's insights will be invaluable for Vayu as it works to build the next generation of AI-powered robotics.
Hinton, a professor emeritus at the University of Toronto known as the "Godfather of AI", has officially joined Vayu Robotics' advisory board. This comes after years of declining other startup offers, showing Hinton sees real potential in Vayu's co-engineered approach combining machine learning, computer vision and mechanical engineering.
As a former PhD student of Hinton's, Vayu CTO Nitish Srivastava is excited to collaborate directly with his respected mentor once again. "Learning from Dr. Hinton's pioneering research and discussions of AI ethics has stayed with me throughout my career," said Srivastava. "His guidance will be instrumental as we develop transformative yet responsible robotics technologies."
Vayu CEO Anand Gopalan called Hinton's decision a "tremendous honor", showing the company's dedication to building not just innovative robotics, but also a culture that values relationships and human impact. With Hinton on board, Vayu is well positioned to realize its vision of making robotic automation accessible to all while avoiding issues plaguing other AI applications.
Look for big things ahead from Vayu Robotics as it works alongside the AI legend himself to usher in a new era of intelligent machines - one focused on safety, sustainability and serving humanity. Keep an eye on this startup as it shapes the future of robotics with ethics and cares at its core.
