Dr. Tessa Liu is a rockstar in the robotics world. With degrees from Cornell & the University of Washington, and many years of working at IBM under her belt, Dr. Lau became the CTO of Savioke before starting her own company, Dusty Robotics.
When Tessa moved from her position as Chief Robot Whisperer at Savioke, into the role of CEO at Dusty Robotics, she maintained her innovative view of the AI space. Today, Dusty Robotics follows Lau’s ambition to create a world where robots give human beings “super-powers.” With a vision to make the impossible, possible, Tessa is now responsible for building state-of-the-art construction bots.
Dusty Robotics empowers construction teams by creating AI machines capable of completing crucial industrial tasks. The company works with some of the world’s most innovative construction brands, and it’s transforming the industry one business at a time.
