During the Demo Night from Montreal NewTech that took place in March, Artificial Intelligence was in the spotlight! C2RO was one of the five chosen startups using AI for different applications in Montreal. Here’s an excerpt from the article:
“A large and normally spacious atrium at Ecole Polytechnique was the scene of the latest Demo Night from Montreal NewTech. Presented by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, our theme for the evening was Artificial Intelligence and we opened the proceedings with an AI roundtable discussion featuring 2 rockstars in this space: Yoshua Bengio, head of the Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms (MILA) and Google Montreal Site Director, Mr. Shibl Mourad.
Currently, in incubation at TandemLaunch, C2RO is a collaborative cloud robotics platform using technology to provide intelligent and data-driven software services in the area of machine learning and computer vision for mobile robots. They basically take the brains of a robot and host it in the cloud. This makes it much easier to have “intelligent” machines that are part of the IoT. It’s cheaper, allows for the use of real-time data and decision making, fast and secure and the tech is robot agnostic too.”
