Andrew Stein

Andrew Stein is the Head of Robotics & AI at Anki, where he began working on the Cozmo project more than four years ago as the team’s first member. He has contributed to several core systems of the product, including vision, cube manipulation, animation streaming, localization, high-level behaviors, and low-level actions. Prior to joining Anki, Stein worked on intrinsic imaging and video at Tandent Vision Science, stereo vision at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, hyper-spectral image analysis at ChemImage, and structure from motion at Intel. He earned his Ph.D. from the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, and his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology. When he’s not bringing cute, friendly robots to life, Stein generally can be found on a nearby tennis court.
