Carnegie Mellon Universitiy opened new robotics playground

New York, Nov. 18, 2021

Carnegie Mellon University has opened a new “makerspace” where students can experiment with AI projects and software.

The 2,000-square-foot space includes drones, robotic systems, smart devices and other hands-on tools at CMU’s Tepper School of Business in Oakland.

The “JPMorgan Chase & Co. AI Maker Space” focuses on software research in areas such as speech recognition, computer vision and general AI. It is scheduled to open in mid-January for the spring semester and will have space for about 20 students to work at a time.

The robotics playground features machines from Misty Robotics, Digital Dream Labs, SoftBank Robotics and Fetch Robotics.

The space was funded by donations from JPMorgan Chase & Co. whose global co-head of digital and platform services said AI will become “the most transformative technology” in financial services in the next decade.
