Robotics AI - Computer Vision
Robotics AI (RAI) mission is to advance science in robotic manipulation, learned control and autonomous mobility for fulfillment. The Computer Vision (CV) team's mission is to improve safety, productivity, and quality of fulfillment and delivery operations through mechanisms that use human-in-the-loop AI for near-real-time scene understanding and activity inferencing. We deploy AI inference on a global camera network, using AI as a filter in front of (or in place of) human annotation.
