Cobalt Robots Go to MARS

Last week Jeff Bezos and Amazon hosted the 3rd annual MARS conference: A 3-day conference in Palm Springs that brings together some of the world’s leading authorities in Machine learning, Automation, Robotics, and Space (MARS). The invite-only list of attendees were hand-selected by Bezos and crew, and included astronauts, philosophers, rocket scientists, Nobel Laureates, astrophysicists, and roboticists — including Cobalt’s founder and CEO, Dr. Travis Deyle.

Cobalt brought a pair of robots to the event, where we wowed visitors with our security robots and waxed philosophically about the future of indoor robots for commercial spaces.

Travis captured the overall air of the event, describing it as “a marathon of serendipitous conversations filled with profound optimism about the future of humanity.” Or to put it another way: “You know it’s a good conference when legendary inventors such as Dean Kamen (of Deka Research and First Robotics fame) express feelings of imposter syndrome!”

Jeff Bezos echoed this sentiment, “If you could hold a conference about the beginning of a golden age, why wouldn’t you? I really do believe that we are on the leading edge of an incredible renaissance.”
