Does Your Future Smart Home Include A Rosie-Like Robot?
If you've paid any attention to home robotics over the past decade, you've probably noticed one thing: all home robots are basically single function devices that vacuum our rugs or roll around on the floor. But Misty Robotics' Tim Enwall hopes to change that. You may remember Tim from his days as CEO of Revolv, the company behind the super hub that included seven radios. After spending a couple years at Nest after they acquired Revolv, he made his way over to another Boulder, Colorado company in Sphero to head up the company's home robot spinout.

Your Face Is Your Key: Exploring Facial Recognition Technology with TrueFace's Shaun Moore
Back in 2014, Shaun Moore and his cofounder started selling a consumer video doorbell called Chui with facial recognition and detection technology. Eventually they realized the future of the company was not in doorbells, but in developing robust facial recognition/detection technology that could be applied to a variety of scenarios. Shaun talks about those early days, the competitive video doorbell market, the pivot to becoming an enterprise facial recognition/detection technology provider and the future where your face is your key.
