Dmitry Grishin, co-founder and chairman of Mail.ru, one of the largest internet companies in Russia, recently launched Grishin Robotics. The Russian tycoon is now following his dream of working towards the creation of personal robots.
Our planet has not seen revolutionary breakthroughs in the offline world for many years. The robotics industry is uniquely positioned to leverage recent innovations made in software, Internet and smartphones, and combine them to make a tremendous global impact. We are at the start of a transformative period for robotics that requires a new breed of risk-takers to drive mass-market adoption.
