Autonomous Robots - Speeding Time to Market with Cogniteam

For The Robot Industry Podcast #71, I welcome Yehuda Elmaliah, CEO of Cogniteam and Ari Yakir, VP of Research and Development. Yehuda is formerly Dean of Computer Science at COMAS near Tel Aviv, Israel. He is a leading expert on algorithms for robot autonomy. Ari Yakir has over 15 years’ experience developing and managing cutting -edge algorithms and products for autonomous robots.

Cogniteam, the company has been developing artificial intelligence technologies for robots for over ten years, working with blue chip companies on mapping, navigation and autonomous decision-making.

They have packaged their unique suite of algorithms together as a single product, bringing cloud-based robotic artificial intelligence solutions in one easy-to-use place that allows robot startup companies to get to market faster, develop, prove and scale.

Here are some of the questions that I ask Yehuda and Ari:

How did you get started?

  • What are the industry’s biggest challenges from your perspective?
  • Who are your bulls eye customers?
  • Tell us a bit about some challenges in use cases getting involved in?
  • Can you name some of your partners or integrators? 
  • How do you sell to your perspective clients?
  • How has pandemic changed the new normal? 
  • Your growth plans?
  • How can people get a hold of you?
  • What do you like to do when you are not programming robots
