“We build artificial intelligence that enables service robots to collaborate with people and adapt to dynamic human environments,” Dr. Vivian Chu, cofounder and Chief Technology Officer of Diligent Robotics, said in a statement. “Diligent Robotics is delivering a new class of hospital service robots by building a solution that can autonomously navigate a hospital to perform collaborative tasks with nursing staff.”
