What are Robots, and How are They Transforming Recycling?

Asked to describe a robot, most would default to a character from science fiction—something resembling a human form. What ultimately became AMP Robotics can even be traced back to Founder Matanya Horowitz’s early fascination with such animated characters. But as robotics applications evolve, it’s time to challenge—or expand—the traditional understanding of a robot. We’ll explore recycling and how robotic sorting units driven by AI are bringing much-needed change to an industry not known for innovation, while demonstrating the usefulness of conceiving of “robots” as large, autonomous systems.
