(TheMonitorDaily) Toyota is reported to be the mysterious buyer of Google’s Robotic Division Boston Dynamics. The Toyota acquisition of the robotic project may have been determined by its connections with the Research Institute. Gill Prats, the CEO of the Institute, is a friend of one of Boston Dynamics’ managers.
The Toyota Research Institute was established in November 2015 and started hiring in January this year. Its mission is to do research in the fields of artificial intelligence and robotics. Since its formation at the end of 2015, the Institute attracted many Boston Dynamics employees, who left the company to join the newly created Institute.
