Built Robotics is an industrial automation company that designs to make autonomous construction equipment. They also allow one equipment operator to oversee a fleet of vehicles working autonomously in parallel. It combines sensors such as GPS, cameras, and lidar with advanced software, and the systems can be installed on standard equipment from any manufacturer. The company transforms heavy equipment into autonomous robots for the $1 trillion earthmoving industry. It also develops AI guidance systems to transform heavy equipment into autonomous robots. Built’s guidance systems are deployed today across the $1 trillion earthmoving industry, and they’re being used to build critical infrastructures such as wind farms, gas pipelines, and new housing developments. Built Robotics is backed by some of the top investors in Silicon Valley, including Founders Fund, NEA, and Next47, and has raised over $48M to date.
Diveplane Corporation is a groundbreaking technology startup dedicated to keeping the humanity in AI. Their first project is an Understandable AI decision system. They believe in Responsible AI, meaning machines ought to preserve, amplify, and empower the best intentions of humanity both in how they function technically, and how they are applied to solve problems – unlike uninterpretable black box systems that make life-altering decisions in an instant, but can’t explain why. Their proprietary and patented AI platform is faster than current off-the-shelf solutions and can train on significantly less data, while also addressing the technical shortcomings and societal concerns that have kept many from trusting and adopting AI.
Feedback Loop is the agile research platform for rapid consumer feedback. Farmers Insurance, Humana, Lending Tree, Uber, and Fortune 500 companies trust Feedback Loop to bring the voice of the consumer into critical market decisions. Formerly known as Alpha, Feedback Loop was founded in 2014 and is headquartered in New York City and backed by Crosslink Capital, Spider Capital, and Calibrate Ventures.

HealthTensor develops artificially intelligent systems to automate documentation for physicians. Their technology mines the medical record for pertinent information, assists in diagnosing key conditions, and generates proper documentation. By integrating into the workflow, HealthTensor can provide trusted, evidence-backed notes directly to physicians to save time, reduce liability, and optimize appropriate reimbursements.
Parallel Domain is a synthetic data generation platform for computer vision and autonomy. Parallel Domain provides a smart way to prepare both machines and human operators for the real world, while minimizing the time and miles spent. Users can connect to the Parallel Domain API and tap into the power of synthetic data to accelerate their autonomous system development. Parallel Domain generates synthetic labeled data sets, simulation worlds, and controllable sensor feeds so users can develop, train, and test their algorithms safely before putting these systems into the real world.
Pared is an on-demand tool for restaurant workers. The company's mission is to make restaurant life easier by connecting restaurant owners and operators with the restaurant staff they need, when they need them. Founded in 2015, the company is headquartered in San Francisco, California, United States.
The business end of a robotic arm is the gripper. The March 2105 edition of Modern Materials Handling best describes the challenge when they wrote: “Perhaps more than any other element of robotic development in warehousing and distribution, the end-of-arm tooling, or gripper, is the place that can make or break a robot’s success.” Advancing gripper technology is the key to unlocking a new age of automation. An age where they can automate tote pick and pack for grocery distribution, bin picking of soft and delicate parts, e-commerce order fulfillment, fruit harvesting, luggage handling, and consumer goods packaging. The US fresh produce packing market alone represents a $27 billion retail market searching for automation solutions. Soft Robotics has demonstrated the ability to bring robotic product handling and packaging to this market. These are problems of adaptability, complexity, and cost. The search for a more adaptable gripper has driven up the complexity of design to devices like servo grippers and complicated tool changing requirements. This complexity comes at a high price in gripper cost, the need for larger arms, and complex software and hardware integration. Their revolutionary soft robotic technology, covered by more than 40 patents and applications, enables us to design and manufacture soft robotic hands that address the new unstructured world of automation and logistics. Through their propriety knowledge of actuator geometry, material selection, and operating envelope, they can tune actuators to be force limiting with NO CLOSED LOOP FEEDBACK system required. Soft Robotics brings the highest level of adaptability, while lowering system complexity and total system cost. The adaptive nature of their technology allows a single grasper to handle an unprecedented range of objects, regardless of shape, size, or weight, with no tool or software changes between cycles. We’ve demonstrated the ability to grasp bags of rice, raw food, bars of soap, boxes of toothpaste, and clothing all with a single device. But soft does not mean weak. Their technology has the ability to scale from the smallest to the largest task. The result is an automation solution that can pack a tote for retail distribution, pick fruit off the vine, or easily handle a ten pound kettle bell. They have demonstrated the speed and precision necessary to integrate into the factories and warehouses of today and the future, operating at speeds up to 130 picks per minute.Their system is plug and play with the most common industrial robots using industry standard protocols and vision systems.They have designed the system to be “robot and vision agnostic,” allowing the system to quickly and seamlessly integrate with the full range of robots, from small collaborative systems to high speed industrial packing cells. Soft Robotics launched their industrial product at Automate 2015 in March 2015, Their produce handling system in June 2015, and started shipping in June 2015. They are now selling systems to their pilot customers. Soft Robotics is foundational technology that solves the problems of today and unlocks the future of automation.
