Jul 7, 2017

In this episode of the ARCHITECHT AI and Robot Show, Signe Brewster speaks with Drone Racing League founder and CEO Nicholas Horbaczewski about the fast-growing sport he created, where pilots race drones at speeds up to 85 miles per hour. Among other things, Horbaczewski discusses the sport's evolution from idea to nationally televised event watched by 33 million people last year; how drone racing is pushing the industry to create better components for mainstream drones; and why he thinks the first iterations of drone package delivery and other commercial applications will actually be piloted by people.

In the news segment, co-hosts Derrick Harris, Signe Brewster and Chris Albrecht talk about Baidu's new self-driving car project; commercial robots for helping hospital patients and playing bartender; and what DeepMind's new Canadian research center says about the dispersement of AI talent.
