Fei-Fei Li: AI's new possibilities for robots

Fei-Fei Li is widely known as the godmother of AI, thanks to her groundbreaking research in the field. You can draw a straight line from her early work to the generative AI of today. Now, she's at the forefront of what comes next, which includes bringing together generative AI and robotics for use across industries. Niala visited Dr. Li's lab at Stanford last week and spoke with her about the very latest applications of AI, and what's at stake in their development.
