7 Pro Tips for New and Aspiring Roboticists
It's been nearly two decades since Intuitive Surgical launched its first da Vinci system and yet, in many ways, the field of robotic-assisted surgery is still in its infancy. Add to that the rapidly developing field of artificial intelligence (AI), and the job prospects for someone interested in pursuing a career in robotics and/or AI are incredible."I would love to be a kid from the [Silicon] Valley right now graduating with a degree in AI," said Thomas Low, director of robotics at Menlo Park, CA-based SRI International.Companies developing AI and robotic systems are challenged with finding and retaining the talent needed to make the impact they want to, Low said during a panel discussion at MD&M West in Anaheim this week. Low and his fellow panelists offered some interesting career advice for students and entry-level roboticists and AI developers. Read on to learn 7 pieces of wisdom the panelists shared with attendees.
