Data Science / AI / Robotics

The collaboration between these fields is generating world-changing technologies.

We’re making enormous inroads in the growing fields of AI and robotics, creating drones controlled with a simple gaze, making it easier for surgeons to perform delicate operations, developing algorithms that make financial investing more secure, and other such improvements.

Our AI experts and roboticists are working in concert with our data scientists, who are discovering new ways to analyze, visualize, and use the 2.5 quintillion bytes of data the world generates each and every day in the form of GPS signals, shopping transactions, taxi rides, social media posts, online videos, and digital photos, among other sources. It’s a collaborative ecosystem with a single goal: to harness the collective power of data, machine learning techniques, and autonomous systems to address the issues facing the world.    More on Robotics
