Join us for another super Women in Robotics Happy Hour - an event for women working in robotics or women who want to work in robotics. This time our wonderful hosts will be SoftBank Robotics, with guest speaker Linda Pouliot CEO of Dishcraft Robotics.
Linda Pouliot is founder and CEO of Dishcraft Robotics in San Carlos, California, a venture-backed startup that develops robots for commercial kitchens.
In 2004, she co-founded Neato Robotics with the idea that robots can perform household chores as effectively as humans.
