MARC RAIBERT IS THE FOUNDER AND CEO OF ROBOT MAKER BOSTON DYNAMICS.
While working at Boston Dynamics, Marc Raibert built some of the world’s most advanced robots, such as BigDog, Atlas, Spot and Handle. These robots are inspired by the remarkable ability of animals to move with agility, dexterity, perception and intelligence. A key ingredient of these robots is their dynamic behaviour, which contributes to their lifelike qualities and their effectiveness in the real world.
Raibert founded Boston Dynamics as a spinoff from MIT, where he ran the Leg Laboratory, which helped establish the scientific basis for highly dynamic robots. He was a professor of EE&CS at MIT and before that associate professor of CS & Robotics at Carnegie Mellon University. Raibert is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and is currently on the board of Directors at Nimble, an autonomous logistics and AI robotics company, along with fellow directors, Sebastian Thrun and Fei-Fei Li.
