Summary (IA Generated)

Warehouse fulfilment, construction, surgical and agriculture are key targets for automation I visited Boston last week and met with a number of robotics researchers, startups and established companies — more on that later — in the lead up to TechCrunch’s fourth annual TC Sessions Robotics AI in early March. A big part of prepping for that event and my recent trip involved surveying some of the biggest funding raises from the past year. […] The definition of robotics is, of course, broad and only getting broader, as these technologies grow and mature. It’s worth noting that for the sake of my own research, I’ve mostly excluded autonomous driving — one of the key targets of robotics investment. […] With those caveats in mind, these verticals have been the key focuses of robotics investments: warehouse automation/fulfillment, construction, retail/food, agriculture and surgical/medical.
