Playground.Global is a $800 million venture fund that partners with the best and brightest when it comes to engineering and robotics. They have built foundational companies such as Agility Robotics and shipped breakthrough products such as Lighthouse AI’s security cameras, which can recognize faces and keep track of your kids. Now they want to build a firm that serves the next generation of hardware – building entrepreneurs.
Thanks to their design studio, where entrepreneurs can build their products onsite, Playground.global provides equipment, facilities, and expertise in addition to funding. Peter Barrett discusses how we have the wrong impression of AI and its capabilities. Also, he informs us of how one of the best uses of robotics is actually in agriculture.
