Fostering the communities of robotics and AI in Vietnam and in International
Siloed development, wasted labor, and high start-up cost are limiting the pace of robotics innovation. With Kambria, our mission is to accelerate this process – enabling faster, cheaper, and easier robotics development and adoption by everyone. In this talk we will discuss the unique game-theoretical design of Kambria based on blockchain and crypto-economics to align the incentives of all key stakeholders in the robotics community. Ultimately, the Kambria platform will foster an ecosystem where collaborators, top developers, and companies, who share our passion for robotics technology will deliver affordable and impactful robots to end users. We will then discuss how Kambria could help build a strong AI and robotics community in Vietnam to capture the upcoming opportunities. We will also give a quick demo of our first robot and an arm prototype manufactured based on 3D-printing technology. Our mission is to equip Vietnam with the engineering talents and the manufacturing capabilities to become a significant AI & Robotics hub in the world.
Dr. Vu Duy Thuc – Ohmilabs (USA)
Graduated from Carnegie Mellon with a BS and Stanford with a PhD both in Computer Science, Ohmnilabs’ CEO and co-founder Thuc Vu is an expert in Artificial Intelligence and Algorithms. His ambition is to bring robots into every home to create a positive impact in people’s life. And Kambria – a decentralized AI and Robotics platform – is his next move to bring this goal one step closer to reality. He previously founded Katango and Tappy which were quickly acquired by Google and Weeby.co, respectively. He also invests in early stage startups and helps grow the ecosystem in Vietnam. Apart from being an entrepreneur, Thuc is also a Research Scientist and Assistant Professor at John Von Neumann Institute of Vietnam National University. As a way to pay it forward, Thuc co-founded VietSeeds in 2011, a nonprofit organization empowering hundreds of underprivileged students with excellent academic record in Vietnam. In 2017, he was named as one of the “40 Under 40” of Silicon Valley by the Silicon Valley Business Journal for his tireless effort to bring about a significantly positive impact in the business world.
