Starting a new job at a new company made my life interesting lately. In a word, I was hit by the Chaos Monkey pretty hard. Here’s the mindset change that made me go through this chaos.
Talking in public can be daunting. I’ve been doing it more and more lately and I was lucky enough to get some coaching. Here’s what I learned!
After a long and amazing experience working on the most advanced hands in the world at Shadow, I’m moving on to address new challenges.
I’m always looking for exciting ways to make grasping and manipulation easier for non-roboticists. Teaching from demonstration is one of the many ways to address this.
Here’s the full story: Humans are handy to have around.
In August, over 350 new datasets were published on Kaggle, in part sparked by our $10,000 Datasets Publishing Award. This interview delves into the stories and background of August’s three winners–Ugo Cupcic, Sudalai Rajkumar, and Colin Morris. They answer questions about what stirred them to create their winning datasets and kernel ideas they’d love to see other Kagglers explore.

I had the chance to be interviewed about my work at Shadow Robot by a French TV channel. This was made possible by working at a coworking space, yet another advantage of being a remotie!

First Place, Grasping Dataset by Ugo Cupcic
Our team selected this dataset because it combines two exciting fields of research: robotics and deep learning. To learn more about the dataset, we loved Ugo’s excellent blog post “How I taught my robot to realize how bad it was at holding things” complementing the usage of Kaggle to make such a unique research-based dataset open and accessible to all.

As the Chief Technical Architect of the Shadow Robot Company, I spend a lot of time thinking about grasping things with our robots. This story is a quick delve into the world of grasp robustness prediction using machine learning.
Are you thinking of making the leap as a remote worker? But you wonder what it’d be like to work remotely?
Or you’re curious about how your fellow remote workers live?
A few of our members share a peek into their daily lives and how they handle working remotely.
As I covered in different previous posts, being a Remoty has plenty of advantages when it comes to work-life balance. However, another advantage I discovered recently was the “slashing” possibilities…
