Vicarious is an artificial intelligence company for robots. It currently researches four main AI themes: data efficiency, task generality, neuro & cognitive sciences, and conceptual understanding. The company aims to expand the use case of robots from controlled environments like in an automobile factory to dynamic environments by building human-like intelligent robots. Some of Vicarious' competitors have used deep learning to train AI models. Deep learning is self-education for machines; an AI is fed huge amounts of data, and eventually it begins to discern patterns all by itself. In contrast, Vicarious is working on developing general intelligence for robots (i.e., actively making logical inferences as it goes, like a human).
The company was founded in 2010 by Dr. Dileep George and D. Scott Phoenix. Previously Dr. Dileep George was Chief Technology Officer at Numeta, a company co-founded by Jeff Hawkins and Donna Dubinsky (PALM, HAND). D. Scott Phoenix was Entrepreneur in Residence at Founders Fund and CEO of Frogmetrics, a touchscreen analytics company.
