Andrew Archer, a serial entrepreneur with a focus in Artificial Intelligence and robotic systems. He began building robots at the age of 12 and subsequently started his first company at 16 producing wifi connected motor controllers for robotics before IOT existed. His robotics prowis, passion, and applications rapidly expanded due to his voracious appetite for improvement and his brilliant mind. His robotics passions have spanned many fields including: Military, Medical, Automotive, Automated Warehousing, Robotic Parking, creating disruptive companies focusing on mobile robotics, driverless vehicles, human / robotic symbiosis, etc.
In a recent TED talk Andrew was described as Creating Disruptive Technologies through Innovative Means. As quoted by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, “With more entrepreneurs like Andrew — we could see a bottom-up renaissance of American manufacturing.”
Andrew believes in the symbiotic nature of robotics and people. Through his public school outreach programs Wreck Lab Make Lab and others, he has been able to motivate school children and their parents enabling them with hands on experience in creating simple robotics. Andrew believes that through education, exposure, and demystifying so-called complex systems, that people will be be able to achieve new heights as a society.
