(VisionSystems) American Robotics—a non-profit venture led by Carnegie Mellon and featuring more than 220 partners in industry, academia, government and the nonprofit sector nationwide—will receive more than $250 million to launch an Advanced Robotics Manufacturing (ARM) Innovation Hub institute in Pittsburgh, PA, USA. This award, according to Carnegie Mellon, puts Pittsburgh and CMU at the center of a new wave of manufacturing, leveraging artificial intelligence, autonomy, 3D printing and other emerging technologies.
“This new institute will provide significant benefits to the region and the nation, while creating enormous opportunities for CMU scholars and researchers, and new momentum for the university,” said Carnegie Mellon President Subra Suresh, who spoke at the announcement at the Pentagon. “The institute, in return, will benefit from CMU’s expertise in technology, as well as its strengths in policy, ethics and human interfaces that will ensure that new technologies work to benefit humankind.”
