It is not only about teleoperation, but also about automation now. Automation is one of the most important features to have robots truly capable of executing real problems in human society. However, automation is not enough either.
We need both teleoperation (i.e. human intelligence) and automation (i.e. machine intelligence) combined. By letting automation learn from human support, real problems could be solved to a magnitude better compared to automation by itself.
We are hoping to bring the seed which eventually grows and changes the world itself, and we believe the project we’re currently working on is fully capable of doing it. If you have an awesome track record in CVPR, ICRA, etc and you want to deploy your knowledge and ideas into reality, this is the place for you. If you want to productize robotics technology, this is also the place for you. Proven track records of quick-learning, adaptability, and problem-solving can be considered as equivalent skill experience in special cases as well.
